Spanish Bulletin Board

It’s that time of year again. Putting up bulletin boards and getting your classroom ready for the students. Hope you had plenty of Stikki Clips on hand to hang up those posters, otherwise cross your fingers that you won’t walk in on Monday with the posters laying on the floor.

This year I decided to make my bulletin board reflect the theme of Mexico. I have two bulletins on the side of my white board, so I bought red and green plastic tablecloths at Dollar Tree for $1. It is such much easier than using that big ol’ butcher paper that all schools have.

On the green side, I put up a poster of “Mexico” that I got free years ago by writing to airline companies and asking for donations. I don’t know if they still do this, but it might be worth a try if you need some free decorations and posters. You will also see a panoramic picture of “Piramide del Sol en Teotihuacan” and other souvenirs I have bought or collected over the years, including some leftover currency.

For the right side, on the red background, I decided to feature two of Mexico’s most famous artists: Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo.
Diego Rivera BulletinI have 3 pictures that I took from when I visted La Casa Azul and Diego’s studio. The rest are postcards of the artists themselves or of their works, or brochures from exhibits. I also bought the Diego and Frida “Facebook” poster from Teacher’s discovery, which you can see closer here. I will also be putting the Scholastic Books of “Diego” (Jonah Winter) and “Frida” (Jonah Winter) which have fantastic illustrations! Great books if you don’t already have them.

The end result:
