This board was inspired from a reading lesson I taught last week. My 2nd and 3rd graders read the poem "Theme in Yellow" by Carl Sandburg. The children learned about different points of view and how the perspective of a story can change based on who's speaking.
Once the children had a strong grasp of the skill, we brainstormed different objects connected to Halloween. The children were then required to write from that object's perspective about Halloween.
The children really loved this lesson. There were funny witches, friendly ghosts, a lonely haunted house, and even a gloomy trick-or-treat bag. Both their poems and artwork were amazing! As for the bulletin board, most of my materials I already had: 2 yards of egg yolk fabric, wavy black border, a Halloween banner ($1 at Joanns) and silhouette ravens (dollar store find). I think the best bulletin boards are the ones that you don't plan out too much, and this one came together quickly in an afternoon; you got to love it!
