Classroom Bulletin Board and Touch Points

This year I've decided to change some things around and I'm so happy with how they turned out. We have a super short summer this year because of a calendar change, so I got some bulletin boards up early. I didn't want to have to show up even earlierand cut the summer even shorter.
At the end of the year, my grade level partner was complaining about never having enough of those large posters for Star of the Week. We usually have more than 30 kids in our class. Throughout the year, kids leave, they come, and they go. The poster packs usually have 24 to 30 posters in them. She didn't want to have to buy a whole new pack for just a few children. The money can really add up and you end up with mismatched posters. So I decided there has to be a better way and at the same time make it match your classroom style. I made a pack of Superheroes- Star of the Week. There are 5 sections. You pass out the half sheets for the child to fill out. Easy shmeezy. It also has a bunch of other stuff... I posted the picture below and I just love the colors. My friend is crazy for owls, so that's what she has in her room. My second grade buddy is groovy, so she got a Hippi Theme.

Touch Points for your walls.
Touchpoints are something I also use a lot of at the beginning of the year. Some kids definitely use them more than others. I put them on their desks as well as post them up on the window for them to refer to. I have a set below for you to download it is something you like to use as well. I just cut a half inch border, then placed them on fun colored construction paper. I also have students practice touchpoints with some fun super hero practice sheets. Give Batman a try.
You can also grab the whole set...HERE.

  1. Thank you for the freebie! I was looking for some touch point numbers that weren't themed by season, and this is perfect! Lovely.
