Best Bulletin Board Fonts!

Happy three day weekend, everyone! It's time for another Five for Friday! Here are my five favorite things that happened this week:

1. This was actually last Friday, one of my former students who is now in middle school came to school to visit me. After I greeted him, he held this bag out to me. I asked him what it was for, he said, "you!" I opened it and found that he had bought gas station cookies (our favorite) for both my para and myself. I keep thinking of this all week and smiling. He could have spent his two dollars on anything and he chose to use his money to make us happy! Kids these days. :-)
2. My kids always have trouble remembering which number is the divisor and which is the dividend when changing a fraction to a decimal. I have started asking my students to come up with their own clever ways to remember it. (27 brains are better than one!) They never cease to amaze me.
We call the division box "the house," and I asked them how to remember that the denominator goes on the outside of the house. One girl blurted out, "DING DONG DENOMINATOR!!" and said it was like the denominator is ringing the doorbell! Everyone remembers how to change a fraction to a decimal now! 

3. I bought a table off of Craigslist last week and painted a chalkboard top on it! My family loves it- it's so fun and easy to do impromptu drawings or letter lessons! Yay!

4. Here are the Book Club books my class is reading this month. In January, they read about slavery and Abraham Lincoln. They're enjoying the books so far. The class favorite right now is Chasing Lincoln's Killer- which is not pictured. It's a really action-packed, intense account of the 12 day manhunt that took place after Lincoln's assassination. One of my reading groups is really into the book.
5. A new teacher asked for some bulletin board help this week. I am SO sick of die cuts so I tried searching "bulletin board fonts" on Pinterest and found NOTHING! So I compiled my own list of fonts that are easy to print, laminate, and cut out. Here are my favorite easy bulletin board fonts!

  1. My class loves the Who is series, I think I must have bought 40 of them this year for my second graders. We even did book reports and dressed up as the person the book was about, so much fun!

  2. Good idea to compile a list of good bulletin board fonts. I love KG A Little Swag!

  7. What a coincidence! It is on a Friday and I have landed on this amazing page with exiting news for a Friday party. I wonder whether the party is still on or I have missed it nevertheless, I have enjoyed reading the article and I will seek urgent 1ST Class Essay Writing Help so that I cannot miss the party.

  8. Thank you! Canva revolutionised my work. I work as a PR & marketing manager in hospitality and I don’t have a big marketing budget, so Canva is perfect for me. 1$ for picture is not so much but I can create some nice offers for our clients. Here you have an example of my work: and it was only for 2 $ It’s a nice alternative for Shutterstock etc. Fonts are beautiful, it is very creative thinking to learn how to mix them. I use it also on my personal blog
