My classroom walls are full of bulletin boards and tack strips. I always find ways to use them, but I have one long, narrow bulletin board above my chalkboard that has been divided in half by my Smart Board. So, I have two smaller boards to decorate. Here's what I came up with for one of them. I used the title of Beatrice Schenk de Regniers' poem "Keep a Poem in Your Pocket" for the wording. I used 2" black letters for that. Then I cut a pocket from an old pair of jeans and tucked a poem inside. Here's how it turned out.
I love poetry and use lots of it in my classroom. I plan to hang my poetry chart on the chalkboard below this board.
Here's my inspiration from Pinterest. I think I will type the poem and add it to my pocket like it is here.
