Create this Back-to-School Reach for the Stars Bulletin Board with student-created goals and dreams. This easy activity can be done on the 1st day of school. Students can either trace their own arm/hand or fill in the blank hand/arm document attached. Students decorate the arm/hand with their goals and dreams for their school year or even school career. Each word can be decorated as a different color or in a different style. After the arm/hands are completed, create your bulletin board: Our Class Reaches for the Stars as the title of the bulletin board. Place star cut-outs at the top of your bulletin board and the arm/hands on the bottom, reaching up towards the stars. I created this bulletin board a few years in a row and each year, the bulletin board looked great and received a lot of compliments!
