My School's Bulletin Boards


I thought it would be nice this year to share, not just my beginning of year bulletin board, but my coworker's bulletin boards too! We have a very creative group of faculty and staff who care deeply for our kids and wanted them to feel welcomed! My favorite is the first one. We had it ready for 'Meet the Teacher Night' and each child colored a paper Smartie and received the candy also. I hope you can find some great ideas for your own bulletin boards.

Win the Best Pencil Sharpener Ever!!!



Have you ever heard of the Best Pencil Sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies? If not, you are in for a treat!

When I started teaching 17 years ago I tried different pencil sharpeners in my classroom. There was the old fashioned metal ones the schools provided that were attached to the wall.  I tried countless electric ones. And I even tried giving the kids the little handheld ones. None of these were very effective and were more frustrating than nothing else. I was always asking other teachers what they were using but they were in the same boat as I was. As the years passed and social media made it easier to share with other teachers I was able to ask around for better ideas. That's how I found out about this wonderful pencil sharpener! I saw another teacher posting about it and swearing its effectiveness. She had even posted a video. I was so excited! I ordered one and couldn't wait for it to arrive. When it did I tried every kind of pencil I could. The worst to the best. And you know what? It sharpened them all! Hooray!


A lucky winner will win one of these great pencil sharpeners! And what's great is the winner will get to choose the color! That's right! The winner chooses the color to match her/his classroom decor. I love that!

pink, green, red, blue, and black
