"The Answer Is..." Bulletin Board

Mrs. Patton showcased a fun bulletin board idea over in her corner of Blogland at Mrs. Patton's Patch. Students put cards on the board that have pictures or word problems that result in the answer being whatever she's displayed on the board:


The genius behind this kind of board is that it can be used all year long, you just change the 'answer' every time. She uses it as morning or early-finisher work.


I can also see this being great for other subjects too, not just math! For example:
  • Reading: Encourage predictions about your current book. (This is what Petey the Pig will do next!) 
  • Social Studies: Put up a famous American's name and have students write facts about him or her...or draw that fact using pictures. 
  • Science: put up a vocabulary word and have students draw pictures illustration what that word means.

This is also another great way to have an effective, but low-maintenance classroom since this is a board you create once and use throughout the entire year in a variety of ways. Check out this post to get some more year-round bulletin board ideas. Oh! And don't forget about this fabulous tip too!


This is just one idea that was pinned to the BEST Teaching Tips & Tools board on my Pinterest page. This is a awesome board full of TONS of creative ideas pinned by other teachers. Check it out:
