I started this interactive bulletin board my first year and was stunned by the amount of students who would stop to check out the board and add their own favorites. That month, I had more unprompted book conversations than all of the school year combined!
This bulletin board is meant to engage students and encourage independent reading. There are 4 possible phrases in the main file:
~ Fall in love with a good book (flags and circles)
~ Fall in love with reading (circles)
~ For the love of reading (circles)
~ For the love of books (circles)
The variety of phrases and the color scheme allows you to use this bulletin board for more than the month of February, meaning less time changing boards during the busyness of the year! You could easily switch the letters to make a new phrase and replace the hearts with flowers for spring or with colored eggs for Easter.
The full bulletin board set includes:
~ Letters for the 4 phrases above (1 phrase has flag letters and the others are circles letters)
~ Candy hearts with genre titles
~ 2 types of rating sheets for students (star rating or emoji rating)
~ Printable emoji stickers
~ A "teacher's favorite reads" and "to read" sheet for students to add suggestions to
~ Slips of papers for students to write book titles they want to read next
