We found this really great inspirational bulletin board idea over at The Corner On Character, a blog created by counselor and character coach, Barbara Gruener, and think it would be perfect for any early childhood learning space! While the word ‘contagious’ generally has a negative connotation, in this instance, we think it’s a great reminder that character is not just taught, it’s modeled.
Contagious Character Bulletin Board
- Background: Yellow bulletin board paper.
- Title: “Our Character is Contagious; Make Yours Worth Catching!”
- Border: Cutesy kid themed border or complimentary solid color/patterned border.
- Decoration: Find cutesy clip art images of children to print and hang, have your students decorate a dessert sized paper plate to look like themselves, or purchase kid cutouts from your favorite teacher supply store to arrange around the bulletin board. Script or add printed character words – trustworthiness, compassion, respect, self-discipline, etc. – around the board.
