Here are several bulletin board ideas that can add a refreshing theme to your classroom:

We’re Nuts About Fall Board

Looking to upgrade or replace a worn-out or torn bulletin board? Then the Wrapped Edge Fab-Tak Bulletin Board by Best-Rite is the board for you! Featuring a washable and tackable surface, this bulletin board panel allows you to turn a wall into a bulletin board area while being available in multiple sizes and colors.  It can be easily cleaned and turned to match the fall season by utilizing the “We’re Nuts About Fall” conversion: Use brown construction paper for the ground and make a tree out of crumpled paper grocery bags. Add different multi-colored leaves, some falling to the ground. Print off a template of a squirrel for each child, let them color it and put their name on it. Place the squirrels with a few acorns under the tree and add the caption, “We’re Nuts About Fall.”

Here are several ideas that can help make the transition easier:

How School Chairs Affect Students

Do you remember those countless hours in class sitting through lectures but found it hard to pay attention because you couldn’t seem to stay comfortable?  The devil is in the details which means quality, size, and comfort of a school chair can adversely affect a student’s learning experience.

School is stressful enough so a comfortable learning environment is absolutely paramount.  Similar to an office environment, proper lumbar support maintains the spine’s natural arch so this leads to reduced back strain during long hours of learning.  Having ample space below the chair allows easy access to books, bags, laptops, and other personal effects and also helps with organization.
