I love the look on my student’s faces when they enter the classroom to find a new bulletin board has been put up. It gives them something to look forward to and helps them learn to love coming to school. Here are 9 fall bulletin board ideas for when you’re feeling like your classroom décor is getting in a rut.
I start out the year with a generic bulletin board OR something that matches my classroom theme for the year. Throughout the year, I like to switch it out to match the topic we’re learning about or the upcoming holiday. This doesn’t have to be some elaborate change in décor. One bulletin board can make all the difference!
Fall Bulletin Board Ideas
***Note: I attempted to give credit to each creator, but some of these bulletin boards were uploaded to Google without a website link.
I LOVE the idea of using different colored fall leaves as the border around this fall bulletin board display.
Owls will never go out of style. And nothing makes a statement more than a giant fall tree with leaves and an owl!
These fall bulletin board ideas would not be complete with squirrels. I swear they are my spirit animals! This adorable student art project and writing piece gives perfect fall vibes.
The way I envision this bulletin board in my own classroom is to make each cauldron a different subject matter. You could display vocabulary in each bubble (perhaps students even come up with the words!). Or, you could add student names on each bubble.
I just LOVE how each child made their pumpkins look unique for this bulletin board. It would go great with a pumpkin study, or reading about all things pumpkin!
I just couldn’t help myself with this one. If the pumpkins aren’t for you, maybe the turkeys from Differentiated Kindergarten are! She has a whole tutorial on how they made them.
What makes a statement more than a GIGANTIC spider taking over your bulletin board?!
So simple and easy to create, but this door makes a big impact. I did something similar to this a few years ago on a bulletin board (I wish I had remembered to take a picture of it!) and my students loved it.
I just couldn’t wait to share this one with you. This is the bulletin board I put up for Halloween this year (My son made the pumpkin and I just had to display it too!). We’re going to do a writing piece to go along with it with the prompt “For Halloween, I will be dressed as a…” Each student’s name can be typed or written onto a piece of candy and displayed on a bulletin board or in the hallway with their writing piece.

How I use the writing templates
Students write about what they are going to be for Halloween on one page and what they like to do on Halloween. Display on a bulletin board or out in the hallway.
After Halloween, they write about what they were for Halloween on the following page. Attach each page to a large piece of construction paper, along with a picture of them dressed up for Halloween to give to families at the end of the school year.
