#elemchat #spedchat #printables, #displays
I especially love these resources for creating classroom displays, bulletin boards, and units. They all supply lovely, full color printables that will work well in most classrooms. An amazing variety of themes are available.
These freebie sites are great for new teachers.
Proud Wall - Excellent idea for a bulletin board where students choose what they are proud of and hang it on the board themselves.

I think this will really make a bulletin board much more meaningful and special. Talk about differentiation. Absolutely love this idea.
I saw this idea on Pinterest and had to find out where it came from. To my surprise, it was a new blog called Simply Special written by a special education teacher. Although just getting started, there are several ideas that I would like to
steal mmm…borrow. I thought the getting to know you BINGO game was fantastic. Check out Simply Special. I’ve added the blog to my reader and look forward to future posts.

Letters and students worksheet included!
For a fun and unique Boggle Board you may like to use . It adds a bit of math for an extra dimension.
You can use (Freebie) along with it.
I’m done…now what?
Personalize this bulletin board for your classroom and students will never have to ask you that same question again. All you’ll have to do is point. Probably the first board I put up.
Teacher’s Pet is a superb site for free classroom printables.

They will brighten up your room as well as your lessons.
Teacher’s Pet offers a huge variety of colorful printables sure to make your students smile. Many of the printables are editable so you can customize them to suit your own needs.
All printables are free but you can make a donation to the site if you choose.
Print these on colored card stock or scrapbook paper with patterns for a quick, eye catching banner. Use the alphabet templates to create your own.
Just added to my Classroom Printables” LiveBinder.
Instant Display Teaching Resources will help you decorate your classroom and bulletin boards with posters and signs centered around a variety of subjects and themes. This is a really nice, free collection.
Keep Calm and Carry On products can be seen everywhere, with lots of variations. The saying can be seen on pillows, posters, t-shirts, coffee mugs, etc. Well now your students can create their own using at Keep Calm-O-Matic.
With Keep Calm-O-Matic’s simple to use tool and their own imagination students can create their own personalized poster to print and frame if desired. These would make a great bulletin board. It would be interesting to see what students come up with. Students can choose artwork from the site or upload their own.
To read and share the (very interesting) history of the Keep Calm and Carry On posters read here.
I just came across several really nice sites created by Mark Warner that teachers will find incredibly useful.
The first one “Teaching Ideas” has thousands of ideas and resources, accessed through subjects and topics (screenshot below). There are tons of useful ideas and activities for lessons and many printables to go along with them created by Mark and fellow educators.
Teaching Videos ”This site is intended to be a place where teachers can view and share educational videos that can be used in the classroom. Whilst you can browse Youtube, Vimeo or Google Video to find a wide range of videos, Teaching Videos allows you to see videos which other teachers have recommended as suitable for education. You can also register and add videos to the site yourself!”
Ideas to Inspire “is a place to find lots of inspiring ideas for using technology in your classroom. The site has lots of collaborative presentations which are made by teachers from around the world. A popular resource.”
Teaching News was created in 2009. “is a news blog for teachers. The new Teaching News site has teaching news (of course!),
Teaching Events was developed in 2010. Teaching Events “ is a place to share events that are of interest to teachers. These might include educational shows and exhibitions for teachers to attend, or events which can be used as the starting point for creative work in the classroom.
Welcome to the Web ”is designed to introduce children and adults to the Internet. It includes a selection of interactive areas, which help people to learn about the net. There is also an exciting challenge which tests everything that has been learnt around the other areas of the site.”
Also check out Teaching Photos which has hundreds of resources, photos and ideas for classroom displays. This was one of my favorites. So cool to see what other teachers have created to inspire their students.
With all of these terrific sites I wonder how Mark finds time to teach!
Currently I am working on a LiveBinder featuring great “Printables for the Classroom”. It’s not done yet…really they never are (‘cause there is so much good stuff out there), but I’m ready to start sharing it. Take a look. I hope you can find some things you can use in your classroom.
Mandy Gregory’s “Free Printables for the Classroom” is featured on the first page of the binder. She has quite a collection of resources for nice printables.
Sparkle Box came to mind as I blogged about Have Fun Teaching as another great site for a wide variety of printables. Their FREE products really do sparkle. Not only do they have wonderful things for students but they also have great things for teachers too. They have classroom management resources/printables and bulletin boards signs/posters too. It’s kind of hard to describe what they have because there is so much and it all sparkles with color so I encourage you to check it out for yourself. This site can really brighten your world.
Below is just a sneak peak (screenshot) of what is waiting for you at Sparkle Box.
Not feeling creative but need a poster or bulletin board fast…check out the doodads from Mrs. Pancake. She has tons of downloads to suit many needs. You will find many things to use as classroom projects also. Everything is just a click and print away. Most doodads are in color but some are also offered in black and white. The site is free but you can donate if you want to.
