February may be the shortest month, but it is one of the busiest months in elementary teaching! Of all the holidays and events we celebrate in the second month of the year, Black History may be one of the most important. While this topic is something we can teach all year, we should give extra attention to it this month. With this in mind, I wanted to create a Black History Month Bulletin Board Resource for students in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. In this post, I’ll discuss what is included and how you can implement this lesson into your Black History curriculum.
This new Black History Bulletin Board resource includes everything you need to create a purposeful display. Here’s what you’ll get:
- A Black History Month Writing Flip Craft
- 6 Differentiated Writing Templates for K-2 writers
- “BLACK HISTORY MONTH” bulletin board letters in three different styles:
- Color letters with black shadow
- Color letters with gray shadow
- Black and White letters – print onto any paper color of your choice
- Custom bulletin board borders
- Bulletin Board Decor in Black History Month colors – hearts, pennants, rainbows, and more!
Prepping Your Lesson
Prepping your lesson is simple with the print-and-go templates.
First, you’ll copy the heart with three sections (for the top of the craft) onto white cardstock.
Next, select the writing template of your choice. Copy this page onto white card stock as well. Then, the kids will do the rest. Students color and cut the top of the craft. They complete the writing portion and cut out that heart as well. Last, stack the two hearts and either staple or glue the flip craft together.
Assembling Your Black History Bulletin Board
Choose your bulletin board letters. Print, cut, and laminate. Display the craft with the bulletin board decor to create your Black History Month Bulletin Board!
You can shop this resource in my TPT, Etsy Store, or on my Kindergarten Korner Shop Site.
Overall, I hope this post has provided you with some inspiration to celebrate Black History with your students. If you use this display, I would love to see pictures!
