The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
- Die-cut several of the Border, Filmstrip #2 shapes from black cardstock or construction paper.
- Adhere student photos behind the filmstrip openings (Figure A). (Other die-cut shapes may be placed behind the openings if desired.)
- Attach the completed filmstrip across the top and bottom of a bulletin board.
- For the title of the bulletin board, die-cut two letters each from the Notepad Alphabet, Capital Letters set, one from black cardstock or construction paper and one from assorted colors of cardstock or construction paper.
- Leave the colored letters whole. Embellish the black letters with a white pen or marker.
- Cut away parts of the black embellished letters, and adhere them to the matching whole letters. Attach the title to the bulletin board (Main Photo).
- Cut a 2" square piece of black paper in half on the diagonal to create right angle triangles.
- Place adhesive on the outside edges of the triangles to make a holder for student work. Attach a triangle to each corner of a 9" x 12" sheet of construction paper.
- Slide the corners of reports or pictures into the corner holders to display student reports and artwork without damaging the student’s work. Their work can then be returned to them when the bulletin board comes down (Main Photo).
