Ready or not, the Back to School season will soon be upon us!  If you’ve been following this blog or my social media accounts, you know that I love a good bulletin board.  This post is dedicated to Back to School bulletin board ideas.  Let’s dive in…

Back to School Bulletin Board Ideas

Back to School Bulletin Board Ideas

You can find these printable bulletin board sets in my TPT Store as well as in my Kindergarten Korner Shop Site.  Without further ado, here are some of my favorite boards to display to welcome my incoming students…

Football Themed Kick Off Bulletin Board

Football Back to School Bulletin Board

Let’s begin with one of my favorites.  I actually use this resource as my first Family Homework assignment.  I send the football player templates home for the kids to decorate in their favorite team’s colors.  When they return them, we complete the football writing in class.  I have them paint the field backdrop, and I display with the included bulletin board letters.  You can read more about this Back to School Football Bulletin Board Resource HERE.

Welcome Bulletin Board Kits

In addition to the student created bulletin board above, I also like to display a Welcome bulletin board in the hallway.

You can find several options for Welcome to Kindergarten Beginning of the Year Bulletin Boards in my TPT Store like the one shown below.

We also have  Welcome Back Bulletin Boards for ALL GRADE LEVELS like this one below styled by @teachingtinieswithtaryn.  She did a beautiful job!

We Put the Kind in Kindergarten

Next on the list of Back to School Bulletin Board ideas is a design that is kindergarten specific.  It’s one of my absolute favorites that goes along with the book I published, We Put the Kind in Kindergarten.
