Dollar Tree is amazing. I've used table cloths to cover bulletin boards and they usually have borders and posters there as well. if you want something to hang from the ceiling they usually have that in the party section. Plus if time allows they usually have more you can buy from the website, but I think it's typically for in bulk purchase .

Dollar Tree is your friend. Wrapping paper covers boards. They also have bins for organization I picked up posters at Walmart during the year.

less is more. hit up vet teachers to see if there's anything they are getting rid of and make friends with the secretary to get any extra supplies they might have.

Kids work! Assuming school has started obviously. Parents LOVE the I Am poem

Normally that would be my game plan but the open house is before school starts for the kids. My classroom will have as much student work up as possible though once school starts!

Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall?

Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
