Colored clothesline with T-shirts

Why not make it your word wall or literacy wall using Beth Newingham literacy posters?

with rhubarb it sounds like it would be the perfect spot for a Word Wall. I envy you. I never can find a good spot for mine.

uses her big bare wall (I'm so jealous she has one!) for her word wall. It worked well and freed up one of the bulletin/white boards that she otherwise would have used for the word wall.

Student bulletin board

This would be a great place to use yarn to make a large grid with areas for each student to have his/her own block to display favorite work! When I had lots of bulletin board space, I also used large areas like this to display student writing with work in progress.

Look for a more detailed explanation- "Something to Smile About" on

I had a big blank wall this past year and I used it for these word family posters from carson dellosa. We'd put up two new posters a week so the wall was a work in progress. My kids would refer to these posters quite a lot. Here's a picture of the posters:

During the first week of school I send home a tagboard cut-put of a student (similar to the student puzzle pieces). The students, for their first week of homework, decorate it to look like themselves with their family (real pictures, glitter, yarn, etc.). Then I make a construction paper name plate (laminated) to put underneath. I attach this to the top of a vertical piece of construction paper. This then becomes their own work display. It fills my big wall and since I attach their work with thumbtacks to the construction papere it is very easy to change. This year I decided to have the students decorate a tagboard fish (for my ocean theme) and my title for my wall will be "A School of "Fintastic" Writers". My other big wall is my word wall... so as pp stated, that is an option too!

I was finally able to attach a picture of an example. The file was too big unless I cropped only one students out... I cant figure this attaching part out!!

There are many good idea here for things to put on your wall.

One thing to think about if you want to break the wall up is to use bulletin board boarder to outline areas the same way you would a bulletin board. That way it would look like you had several bulletin boards. I have done that before when I didn't have a bulletin board.

You could tape border in the shape of a bulletin board and then set up your word wall....just a thought.
