Back to School Basics, Week 8

Y'ALL! This is it! We are down to our final week of Back to School Basics. We have spent 8 weeks doing little tasks to start the year off ahead. I really hope you are feeling a little bit more ready for August and all of the back to school craziness! This post does contain affiliate links.

This week's task is to: Plan your bulletin boards! When I plan bulletin boards, I try to create boards that will last the entire school year...or longer! 

I use this board for a photo backdrop at the beginning of the year. I used this amazing paper and just printed the letters myself ! It's so happy and bright! I will later take the letters off and just use it to display student work!

In the hallway, I always have a Meet the Authors board! I've done it 7 years in a row! It features student biographies and a place for work to be displayed. I get SO many compliments on it. You can read all about it HERE. 

Inside my classroom, I have boards set up for each subject and use them to display anchor charts! I love that they are used by my students and Here is an example of my Reading Board:

The text connections posters can be found HERE.  

Want to know a little secret? I have kept my boards the exact same for three years now. Really! They still look amazing too! My secret is this paper! It is seriously the best and looks just as bright years later! It is SO much easier to use than the butcher paper roll that I can't ever cut straight. It comes in lots of colors too! Way worth it! 

Oh and I'm sure you have heard by now that the BIG Back to School TPT Sale starts tomorrow! My entire store is on SALE! It's a great time to stock up on materials to make your school year easier like these math journal problems, vocabulary cards or Reading Notebook Essentials!

Thanks so much for spending your summer with me! I really hope that has been helpful!  Here is the entire summer series if you are just joining us!
