Our Thankful Hearts

Invite students to open their hearts and share what theyre thankful for on this Thanksgiving bulletin board.

DIRECTIONS

  • Use colored construction paper to create a simple barnyard scene on a classroom bulletin board.
  • Provide each student with a turkey template; have students cut out and decorate their turkeys.
  • Provide each student with a heart template. Ask students to trace their templates onto colored construction paper and then cut out the construction paper hearts. Then invite each student to use a black pen or marker to write on the heart what he or she is most thankful for this Thanksgiving.
  • Have students glue or paste their hearts onto the back of their turkeys to form the tail feathers.
  • Display the turkeys on a bulletin board titled "Our Thankful Hearts."

Bulletin Board Tip of the Month

Do your bulletin board borders become bent and torn during storage? Try this bright idea: Punch a small hole at the end of each individual section of border and hang the sections on regular coat hangers in your classroom closet.

Are you just plain bored with your plain borders? Try making interesting new borders from such material as wide ribbon, greeting cards, wallpaper borders, fabric ends, postcards, upside-down muffin tins (foil or regular), paper rulers or measuring tape, comic strips, or old CDs.

Do you have a bulletin board idea to share? Send your most successful bulletin board idea (with a sketch or photo, if possible) to BestIdea@EducationWorld.com. If we use it, we'll send you an official Education World mug!
