Winter Bulletin Board Ideas

We think you'll like our winter bulletin board ideas! Choose our skating penguin or our happy snowman--or both! Be sure to scroll down the page to find various ways to use both displays.

Winter Bulletin Board Idea - #1


Background: White or light blue paper

Border: Dark blue or dark green

Lake: Medium blue

Penguin:  Use our pattern, resizing as needed. Ask students to color the penguin's scarf, hat, skates, eyes and mouth.

Variation 1: Students post excellent spelling quizzes and activities.

Variation 2: Change the title to Skate Into Synonyms. Assign a different adjective to each student. Ask him to write that word, along with several of its synonyms, onto a winter shape, such as a mitten, ice skate or snowball. Add these to the display.

Variation 3: Use with any subject area, i.e., Skate into Language Success, Skate into Math Success, etc. and post excellent student papers.
