What kind of walls do you have in your classroom?
  • Drywall
  • Cinder block
  • Bulletin boards
  • Textured wall
How are you allowed to hand things in your walls? (can you use hot glue, staples/push pins, sticky-tac, painter's tape, etc.)
Do all of the classrooms in your school have the same type of walls?

Two of my walls are drywall and two of my walls are brick and I can use anything on my brick walls that will hold on but only painters tape on my drywall.

Our walls have a cork type of thing on them. They don't look like cork, but you can easily put in a thumb tack. Yes we can hang things on the walls, you cannot cover more than 75% of the wall with paper, per the fire marshall, who comes to check at least once a year.

We have all cinder block walls. I use hot glue.

My old classroom had plaster walls. I was afraid to put anything on them.

We have cinder blocks in our classrooms. I use Stikki Tack to hang things on them. I also have 4 separate cork style bulletin boards. I use pushpins or staples on the cork boards. We do have to keep the hanging to a minimum due to fire codes. We can't use fabric or string.

I have painted wood paneling . I just nail right into that stuff. For posters and things like that, Iíll use the blue sticky tack, but nails for all the other stuff. I donít figure it can get any worse than it already is.

We all have the same type of walls. If our school ever catches on fire it is going fast with all of the paneling. Our library was renovated many many years ago ( I was doing my internship when it was finished so 14 years ago), it has drywall. We also have a wing that was built about 20 years ago that is drywall. Any of our rooms we can use whatever to hang things on the walls.

All of our classrooms have cinder block walls. Most of us use hot glue to hang thing that need to stay up all year or a longer period of time. I have used sticky-tac on things that need to stay up for a bit. I also hot glue clothespins onto the wall - then I can change out anchor charts easily.

Cinder blocks, all of them. I use clear packing tape or stikki tack for items that need to be up for a while, masking tape for other items.

I have three walls that are plaster and one that is a textured (removable) wall that is all magnetic.

I use magnets on the textured wall and staples on the plaster walls. The custodians prefer us to use staples on the plaster.

Weatherboard, with some masonite and a bit of carpet. It's a very old building, and a hotchpotch. I can use any thing I please to hang things up. I use blutac on the wood and masonite and velcro or pins on the carpet.

I'm in a brand new building. All of our walls are drywall- with a few whiteboards and bulletin boards hung up. P told us that we should use command strips to hang things up, which was a giant disaster. The paint peeled right off after making even the most minor contact with the command strips. My room looks fine as long as I don't move anything .

Very thin drywall....

We're not supposed to use staples but everyone does.

I'm in an almost-new building. During our first year, we learned the hard way that command strips take the first layer of cheap paint right off and sticky tack leaves greasy marks. At least staple holes are tiny.

Three of my walls are cinder blocks and the fourth is drywall. I use thumb tacks on the dry wall and hot glue on the cinder blocks.

Before renovation we had a wall that was covered floor to ceiling with burlap. You could watch mice run up and down the burlap while you were teaching. Yep, don't miss that!
