First Graders & Beautiful Bulletin Boards- Perfect Together!

My students need 3 types of velcro and magnetic tape in order to create beautiful bulletin boards.

My Students

Do you remember ever admiring the beautiful bulletin boards in your class and in the hallway and the pride that you felt seeing your work displayed? I want my students to see their beautiful work displayed not only in our classroom but in the hallway as well.

I teach 22 first graders in a Title 1 School located in a high poverty and high crime area in Pennsylvania.

All of my students receive free breakfast and free lunch. At the present time only a small percentage of my students are at the proper reading and math level. Many of my students come from homes where English is not spoken.

My Project

I am requested 3 types of Velcro and magnetic tape in order to display my students' artwork. My students are currently working on creating Spring artwork. I want their work to be properly displayed both in our classroom and in the hall. It is a challenge to attach artwork to our walls and even our bulletin boards since they are made of cinder block. In order to attach items to our walls, it is necessary to use velcro. In order to attach items to our boards, it is necessary to use magnetic tape.

Please help me display my students Spring art projects in our classroom and in the hallway.

The only way to hang up my students projects is with Velcro or with magnetic tape. I want my students to see their artwork displayed and to feel pride in their work.
