Snapshots of Our Year

This has to be my favorite bulletin each year.  Maybe it's because it's the last one, but mostly because for me, it's a reflection of what we've done and my student's attitudes toward our learning.

I ask each student to write about a favorite activity we've done during the year.  Most write about something recent but a few usually pick an activity from the first part of the year.  We then make a "camera" to take a picture of what's in our brain, our visual image of the activity.  It's always comical to me to try to explain the old school Polaroids to them.  They just can't seem to wrap their heads around it and they ask A LOT of questions.

Here's a few snapshots of our snapshots!  :)

I liked watching the clouds that we did outside.  I saw a rocket cloud.

I love when I made the skeleton.  We used Q-tips!


  1. Presh! Wanna come make me one?

  2. Camera or bulletin board? Lol

  3. Is there a way I can get this? So cute!! :-)

    1. Joanna,
      Thank you! It's a favorite. I actually don't have a pattern...just free handed the whole thing. The writing paper I found in a Google search. Hope this helps!

  4. What did you Google to get the writing paper?
