Nothing is more hopeful than warmer weather, flowers and sunshine streaming through those chilly classroom windows. But why wait until the calendar shows it’s time for the season that ushers in new life? 

Idea #1: Be a Rainbow in Someone Else’s Cloud Bulletin Board

A rainbow is a sign of hope, and spreading kindness like sunshine is the way to go, both in and outside the classroom. For this themed bulletin board, you don’t need many teacher supplies; just some construction paper, scissors, and tape will do to bring the magic of Spring into your classroom. Have your students trace and cut out their handprints from colorful construction paper and arrange them in an arch to emulate a rainbow. We love the motivating message accompanying the board and that students can play a “hand” in putting it together.

Idea #5: Make Time for Mindfulness Bulletin Board

Mindfulness is an essential element of a well-rounded social-emotional learning curriculum. A great way to reinforce a growth mindset and mindfulness practices is to create and provide visuals around your classroom. Like this bulletin board on pinwheel breathing, for example. This particular bulletin board has QR codes for interactive mindfulness techniques but could be tweaked for your specific needs. The pinwheels would make a fun craft if you have young students, but the lesson on mindfulness is terrific for students of all ages. Pinwheels make a great classroom decoration, too.
