Im looking for ideas for Christmas bulletin boards. I teach in a Catholic School and I have student helpers til the mid of Nov so I wanted to get them to trace out some letters and such but I dont know what I can have them do. I do want to have Christmas bulletin boards but I dont know what the title of it would be? Suggestions? Ideas? Thanks so much

Bulletin Board Titles

It really depends on what you'll be using the board for. Is it just for decorative purposes, or will it include children's work or writings?

For example, if you're going to have the students write winter poetry to display on the bulletin board, you could have a title such as the following: Our Winter Poems Will Warm Your Hearts -- The poetry could be mounted at angles on paper snowflakes that the students cut out or on construction paper scarves and mittens.

If you're having them work on retelling stories, They could make flat decorated construction paper snowmen "books" where the head is a flap that is lifted to reveal what happened in the beginning of a story, the middle is a flap lifted to reveal the middle of the story, and the bottom of the snowman is a flap that when lifted displays the ending of the story.
Our Snowment Retellings or Snowmen at Work (You could use cotton-like fabric, hard hats, shovels, tool belts, jackhammers, etc. around or on them to decorate.)

For teaching synonyms and antonyms, you could have them decorate large snow boots made from a given template on colored construction paper. The students could write a pair of synonyms and/or antonyms on each pair of boots. The background of the bulletin board could look like snowy hills or a playground covered with snow.
Something like--Walking in a Winter Wonderland (?)

If you just want something decorative for Christmas, you could always use a title such as-- We "Present" You with Our Wishes for Christmas (present would sound like the short "e" after the r, so you'd use the quotation marks. This form of the word would be used to go along with the following decoration idea: The students could use a template to cut out and decorate gift boxes/presents. On these presents they could glue letters to Santa with their Christmas wishes.

Don't know if these would work for you, but maybe they'll help spark some ideas.

I do a bulletin board titled "A Sense of Winter". Each student chooses a sense (sight, taste, ....) and they come up something that has to do with winter that fits. Examples from the past: taste: Winter tastes like a hot cup of cocoa on a snowy day. hearing: Winter sounds like children's laughter as they build a snowman. touch: Winter feels like a warm pair of mittens. You get the idea? They first draw a picture of what they wrote, and then I have them watercolor their picture. At the bottom of the picture they write in sharpie marker their saying. I put them up in the hallway with cut out snowflakes all around. It looks great, and I can keep it up for part of January too!
