Teacher, pals... I am obsessed with bulletin boards! Since I have less than 5 students in my special education class and we run the whole spectrum of abilities, I have to use several projects to completely fill my board. In my current school, we have themes and deadlines and the theme for this deadline was "writing." Since we've been studying food groups, I decided to focus on fruit. We spent 6 days creating projects and working on differentiated writing assignments to fill our bulletin board. I differentiated by having some students simply trace words (i.e. RED STRAWBERRIES), some students write on lined paper from a model (i.e. Yellow Bananas), and some students wrote a paragraph about fruit using complete sentences. I have included some photos of the projects we created! I hope that you can find some of these useful!
1) Handprint strawberries
2) Shape oranges
3) Marble painted bananas
4) Folded/textured green apples
5) Thumbprint blueberries with popsicle stick baskets
6) Bubble wrap grapes
Note: Because I'm hooked on conservation and being as eco-friendly as possible, all projects were painted on the back side of worksheets that I may have printed too many of or printed wrong, etc. The letters for the board and pieces for the oranges were all made from scrap paper. Even the bubble wrap we used on the grapes was recycled (we actually popped the bubbles as an OT center and then used the empty bubbles for the grapes)!
