Guess Who? Bulletin Board & Freebie

I'm popping in today to share a bulletin board I created for the start of school.  During our back-to-school inservice days I took pictures of our faculty members peeking out from behind books. Teachers were so creative...some chose their favorite children's book, some chose the books they were currently reading, others chose newspapers, magazines, e-readers, and even menus from their favorite restaurants.

It's fun to see the kids gather around the display and discuss who's who.  I snuck a few tricky pictures into the mix...for example, our school nurse (reading a book about infectious diseases) and our superintendent (reading "Leading with Soul").  

Here's a close up of a framed picture.  I printed the frames on colored paper and laminated them. Once I trimmed the lamination, I cut open the corners with an Exacto knife and slid the photos into place.  The frames took a little bit of time, but I plan to reuse them for another project later in the year.

I used this picture from Pinterest as my inspiration.  However, it wasn't linked properly. So if this is your bulletin board, please let me know.  I'd love to give you credit. :)

Click {here} grab a copy of this bulletin board freebie for yourself.  There is a full color and a black and white version provided for ink friendly printing.

I'd love for you to share a picture of your bulletin board on my Facebook page, if you use it.
Enjoy!  :)

I shared more interactive bulletin board ideas over at Adventures in Literacy Land.  I'd love for you to visit me there.


  1. Such an adorable idea! I like the mystery part of it. :) We had a similar bulletin board of teachers reading books at home in their favorite spots with their favorite books. Many of the staff, including me, had pictures reading with their family members. Such fun. Thanks for sharing!!
