Okay, teacher friends, I need your input! My principal approached me on the way to lunch today to let me know that my classroom will be our new kindergarten room next year (eek!) and that I will need to move. It was a total surprise. I knew we needed an extra kindergarten room next year and the speculations were flying about where it would go, but my room never entered the discussions. I sincerely don’t mind moving and am so thankful to be staying in third grade, but it’s a total bummer to find out in the last few hours of school. I already had my August calendar up, that’s just the kind of planner I am. So… I guess you know what I’ll be doing for several days in the next few weeks. That’s where you come in. I’m so torn about my bulletin boards!
The other classroom has the exact same layout as mine, so I planned to move everything over and put it exactly where it is in my current room. I just redid everything last Christmas and am really happy with the layout, board information, etc. but the bulletin boards desperately need repainted in the new classroom. That’s where my indecision comes into play. I have my current bulletin boards in different colors with different borders. I love how put together School Girl Style’s layouts look though and was thinking about picking one paint color and using the same border everywhere. Part of me is afraid that won’t feel as fun, interesting, or inviting though.
Here are pictures of our current room. I know I want the ones on each side of the chalkboard to match next year since they mirror each other, but should they all match? Should I stick with purple, blue, and green? What do you do in your rooms? Do all of your boards match? What do you think are the pros/cons?
Let’s chat, either here in the comments or over on my Facebook page. Bonus points for pictures of your rooms!
