These year round bulletin board ideas are sure to keep you from constantly changing boards…I wish I had the time to change my bulletin boards regularly. When I first started teaching, I tried, I really did. But over the years, I just found that year-round bulletin boards are just easier to maintain. I still have a few things that change on my boards, but the overall look of them stays the same. Check out this post on how to make your bulletin boards pop!
Calendar & Schedule Boards
In upper elementary, we don’t typically have a “calendar time” but having a calendar is still beneficial so students can see upcoming events. A schedule is so important because it allows students to know what to expect.

Student Work Bulletin Boards
Having a space to display work is important. It allows students to take pride in their work but also allows visitors to see what kinds of things your class is learning about. I keep my student work boards really simple so I just have to change out the student work.
Goal Bulletin Boards
I love helping my students set goals in the classroom. So having a bulletin board designated to goals just makes sense. My students typically keep their personal goals in their notebooks, but our class goals are definitely on display.
Subject Bulletin Boards
I’ll be honest and say I don’t have designated spaces for subjects mostly because I only have 2 bulletin boards in my classroom. I do have a space for hanging anchor charts.

Birthday Display Board
Another thing I like to do is to display students’ birthdays. I used to take a picture of each student and put it on this poster I made. I didn’t’ really have a space for that so now I just add cupcakes with student names to this display on my back cabinets.

The family project board sounds like a great idea!
