These 3-D ready-made bulletin boards have been developed with the spirit of giving in mind.
The theme of the festive bulletin boards is the gift of giving.I filled each hollow "head" with treats for my class (small candy, erasers, pencils, etc.)which I handed out the last day of school prior to Christmas break.
However, you could use this bulletin board in a number of ways. How about each reindeer leaving something for school personnel who don't usually get that much recognition from the students? Maybe each student can leave a little treat or letter of appreciation in their reindeer head for the custodian, lunch lady, school secretary, school nurse?
I put the templates and materials for making the reindeer heads in a literacy center. Why a literacy center? The students were instructed to write about this subject: Giving: What does it mean to you? Why give? Ways you give.
This kit gives you more than 4 ready-made bulletin boards for the holiday season. Many options for mix and match. Can use the "same" bulletin board for several years in a row but change it up with the many options for borders, backgrounds, titles, purpose. Complete with templates, borders, lettering, title placards, and instructions for simple 3-d cone-shaped reindeer heads. As for the reindeer head templates ....you can use them hot off the press (as is- with color and all) or use them as "tracers". Just print, cut out, hang up.The students can make the reindeer heads (that's what I did...and they named their own reindeer). Saved me time that way.
