Back to School Bulletin Board Ideas

Every summer I scour the internet to find cute new back-to-school bulletin board ideas for my classroom. I like to have a mix of pre-made boards and ones that are blank (except for the wording) to add a student project to.

To help make things easier for you, I’ve compiled a bulletin board round-up for you to check out. Don’t forget to scroll all the way to the bottom to find some free templates I made to use during the first week!
