As I've mentioned a few times, my school has decided on a safari/jungle theme this year! I recently went in to start working on the hallway bulletin board display for first grade. They pretty much destroy the classrooms over the summer while they clean them, so I didn't do much work in there...but I'm hoping my hallway display will be safe until August! *fingers crossed*
The two first grade boards are right next to each other in the hallway so we decided to do a joint display this year. I used butcher paper to make a giant tree in between the boards that has branches that stretch across them! I found some adorable monkeys at our local school supply store as accent pieces. I especially love the monkeys that peak out from behind the boards!
I went to my school supply store on a mission...I was ONLY looking for jungle themed items (I tend to buy more than I actually need when I'm there!). Here's what I left with:
I bought the banana cards and don't really have a plan for them yet. I might put the students' names on them and have a title like "A Great Bunch of....(writers, mathematicians, first graders, etc)". The round zebra cards will have their names on them and be inside of their mailboxes (so they know which one to put their papers & things in). I'm loving this theme.
Here is my bulletin board when I first got started. I love it!
Here is a zoomed in picture of the tree and board. Check out those adorable monkeys! :)
Do you have any safari/jungle themed ideas that you have used in the past and loved?
