Kind Words BB

This social emotional learning bulletin board idea provides a reminder that speaking graceful, hopeful, and kind to someone can help him or her feel better and stronger. Having an SEL bulletin board in your classroom is a great way to reinforce positive behavior and empathy for one another.

Step 1

Cover bulletin board with Marble Fadeless® Designs Paper. To do this, first cut enough paper to cover the board. Find the center of the paper you’ve cut. Roll in edges in and secure at the bottom of the rolls with binder clips. Start securing the paper to the board by stapling at the top center. Roll the paper out to the left, stapling as you go. Roll out the remainder of the paper to the right stapling across the top. Then staple down the sides and bottom, smoothing the paper as you go along. Cut off excess paper around edges. (For our “How to” video go to: youtu.be/0BW84xgH3fo). Then attach Canary Bordette® Decorative Border around edges and Black Bordette® Decorative Border on top of that.

Step 2

Next prepare bulletin board components. First download and enlarge letters template 300% and cut from Black Pacon® Card Stock. Or if using a Cricut use our files at: bit.ly/3quwjue. Or use Cricut fonts: Drescher Grotesk* and Babette* 5-1/2". Attach letters to board.

* Cricut charges may apply.

Step 3

Next download and enlarge hexagon shape 200% and cut a total of 64 shapes from Ivory, Canary and Lemon Yellow Pacon® Card Stock and Gold UCreate® Metallic Foil Board. Or if using a Cricut go to: bit.ly/3wx2UTG. Attach hexagon shapes to the board, alternating colors in a honeycomb pattern.

Step 4

Final steps, download and enlarge bee template 200% or if using a Cricut go to: bit.ly/3wx2UTG. Cut eight bees from Black Pacon® Card Stock. Then download and enlarge background petals template 200% and cut approximately 32 petals from the Ivory crepe in the Lia Griffith™ Crepe Paper Anemone Flower Kit. Assemble Lia Griffith™ Frosted Paper Anemone Blooms. Stretch and shape crepe paper petals before adding them to both bottom corners of the board. Then attach assembled anemone blooms on top of them. Finish the board by attaching bees randomly around the board.
