Searching the internet for classroom bulletin board ideas is exciting…until you start to think about all the creating, cutting, and laminating that needs to be done. 😅

To keep things easy for you, here are three FREE display ideas that require a minimal amount of time from you! 

Display #1: FREE Amazing Work Coming Soon 

I LOVE seeing how different teachers display their students’ work. 

But, sometimes (especially at the beginning of the school year), those displays can look pretty bare & empty. 🫣

Transform that bare-bones bulletin board into a captivating display that ignites anticipation and fuels excitement among your students.

And the best part? 

All you need to do is print out these place-holder posters and attach them to your bulletin board! 

No cutting or laminating required! 👏

Display #2: FREE Groovy Welcome Banners

Maybe you are looking for something a little more personal to greet your students as they enter your classroom. 

These groovy welcome banners would be a great simple bulletin board display. 🌟

After hanging the banner up on your bulletin board, simply add your students’ names on index cards, circles, or anything else! 

Or, simply hang the banner above your classroom doorway!

Display #3: FREE Grovy Welcome Posters

Another option included in this set is to place a poster in the middle of your bulletin board and surround it with your students’ names. 

These posters are created for Pre-K through 6th grade. 

Both of these options keep things easy on you but allow you to have a retro-themed display to liven up your classroom walls! (Or the hallway outside your door!) 

These are included when you download the free retro banners HERE!
