November bulletin boards focus on the theme of my body and nutrition. The main idea about this theme is to teach children that we are all similar and different at the same time. It is by embracing the combination of the two that we can make the world a better place.
The preschool bulletin board ideas on this page were created by myself and my colleagues.
You can also check out my lesson plans section to find the lesson plans that go along with these beautiful bulletin boards.
Each Child Created a Reproduction of Themselves
We like to provide the children with different materials and allow them to be creative. In this case they are somewhat restricted by the shape of the paper but it is necessary in order to be able to visually see a person.
These creations of themselves hang on our classroom's clothes line all year. We refer to them from time to time and even dress them up for various occasions.
What are Our Bodies Made of?
This is a great way to begin and end the unit. We first brainstorm with the children to find out how much they already know (you might be surprised) at the end of the unit we refer back to this poster to confirm the children's learning. As you can see, this is also a great pre-math activity.
