I am really excited to offer my newest line of products, INTERACTIVE bulletin boards! One of the most difficult things while teaching life skills to students is finding age appropriate and meaningful bulletin boards for the classroom. I created this product to provide teachers with a wide range of options to create real-world themed bulletin boards that students could interact with. What is unique about this product is that it couples life skills instruction with hands-on learning and visuals to bring learning to life.

This specific product focuses on EXPIRATION DATES and assesses students on matching up correct months of the year with their corresponding number (ex: April = 4, January = 1, December = 12, etc.). It helps students practice a skill that they will run across on a variety of contexts ranging from reading expiration dates on food items to understanding issue dates and expiration dates on credit and debit cards as well. This product is great to use on normal bulletin boards, but can also be used easily on whiteboards as well!

How I Use This in My Classroom:

I print and laminate all of the pages from this download and separate the definitions into two sections (Level A and Level B are included). I pick an appropriate leveled set and divide the bulletin board into two separate columns so students can mix and match. Depending on where you use this bulletin board, use either push pins or magnets to hold the definitions and visuals up. I call students up one at a time and have them find the matching pair for each item. When students have mastered Level A, I have them move onto Levels B and C which are aimed to support higher level learners. I love to use a variety of interactive whiteboards in my class and have students rotate through them on a biweekly or monthly basis to continually practice real world skills in a hands on manner.

Purchase Includes:

  • Variety of Bulletin Board Title Options (Both Color & Black and White)
  • 12 Level A Matching Opportunities (With Visuals Included for Months)
  • 12 Level B Matching Opportunities (Same Date, Different Month)
  • 12 Level C Matching Opportunities (Different Date, Different Month)
