Interactive Bulletin Board Ideas

Using bulletin boards for teaching helps students see value in what is displayed on the wall. You can use your bulletin board space for pocket chart activities and even for phonics games. Game pieces can be stored in laminated envelopes. Here are a few interactive bulletin board ideas you might try.

  • Reading Garden: Turn your bulletin board into a serene garden with flowers, butterflies, and trees, each featuring a book title or author’s name. Add leaves or flowers with short book reviews written by students to recommend their favorite reads.
  • Word Wizardry: Transform the bulletin board into a wizard’s workshop filled with magical books. Feature new words, their meanings, and examples of how to use them in sentences. Encourage students to add words they discover during their reading.
  • Book Recommendations Corner: Designate an area for students to recommend books they’ve read and enjoyed. Provide slips of paper or post-it notes for students to write their recommendations and attach them to the board.

Include challenges such as “Read a book with a blue cover,” “Read a book set in a different country,” or “Read a biography.” Provide space for students to write their names and track their progress as they complete each challenge.

Celebratory Bulletin Board Ideas

Many students need encouragement and motivation to help them improve reading skills. You can use your bulletin boards to showcase their work and achievements.

  • Reading Star of the Week: Dedicate a section of the bulletin board to showcase a “Reading Star of the Week.” Display a student’s picture and a short blurb about their favorite book or reading achievement.
  • Reading Olympics: Design a sports-themed bulletin board with different reading challenges or goals as individual “events.” Students can track their progress by moving their name tags or book covers to different events as they complete them
  • Reading Rewards Chart: Create a chart that tracks the number of books or pages each student reads. As they reach certain milestones, they can earn rewards, like stickers or small prizes, which they can place on the chart.

Showcase Bulletin Board Ideas

With some bulletin boards, you can showcase new literature and authors as well as titles students might want to read next. Here are a few possible ideas for you to try out.

  • Genre Bookshelf: Create a large bookshelf on the bulletin board with labeled sections for different genres like Mystery, Adventure, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Non-Fiction, etc. Add book covers or short summaries to represent books from each genre. Encourage students to explore various genres and select books accordingly.
  • Reading Pals: Create a bulletin board that showcases students’ favorite book characters or authors. Have students draw or print out images of their favorite characters or authors and provide space for them to write a brief description or explain why they enjoy the particular character or author. This can be a great way to introduce new books and authors to the class.
  • Author Spotlight: Highlight a different author each month with a brief biography, a collection of their books, and interesting facts about their writing style. Encourage students to explore books from the featured author.
  • Book of the Month: Feature a book of the month on your bulletin board. Include a large image of the book cover, a brief synopsis, and quotes from students who have read the book. Create a space for students to add their own reviews or comments about the book.
