OK I took my camera to work today and got pictures of my bulletin board. I think this is the best idea I have ever had. The kids loved doing it and it came out so cute. My daughter Carol drew the gingerbread house in the upper corner and colored it using construction paper. She is wonderful and a great artist!

The background is covered in tin foil and the kids wrote sentences about the story then colored the gingerbread man. The main hallway in our school is the kindergarten hallway and it's through this hallway that all the visitors pass so it must look good. I try and show the student's best work. This is the first time they wrote sentences and I am so proud of them. When they first came to me some didn't even know if they were left or right handed! Tell me what you think??

The words say "You can't catch us...

We're the gingerbread class!"


This is the great house my daughter made for me!


Till Tomorrow!!!

The board is really cute! It must be great teaching those young minds! I sure wouldn't have that kind of creativity.

Thanks. I have to have a good board as its in the main hallway and we get school tours all the time. I love my school. The first year we were open we didn't have a great reputation mostly because we were a new school. My principal has worked very hard getting the school where it is now. We are one of the top 10 schools of choice in the district and we have been an A school 2 years in a row. I love teaching there. I do enjoy kindergarten but i never thought i would admit that to anyone....LOL...i have even agreed to do it again next year. Who knows I might stay there a while....the kids are great and have so much to learn. thanks again...
