Bulletin Boards and My Classroom

For the past few days, I have been working on changing out bulletin boards and redoing my classroom at the church building. I love teaching Bible class and I put a lot of effort into it. I recently ordered a year's worth of Sunday morning material and I made a list of lessons to create for Wednesday evenings. Since I have acquired two students who are both five years old and since Chloe Jo is not technically a baby anymore, I changed the door from saying "Welcome to Cradle Roll" to this:
It looks wonky in the picture, but I promise my OCD would have freaked if it really looked like that!

I also redid the bulletin boards in my room. I bought a years worth of bulletin board materials for my classroom and the foyer also! I am happy with the way this turned out for the most part. I don't like that the tree is two different colors (what's up with that?!) or that the cardboard was way flimsy. I didn't pay much for the kits so I guess I got what I paid for. It still turned out cute, though.
This small bulletin board is just for attendance charts for Sunday and Wednesday and for Bible charts. Since the bulletin board is so small, I had to sticky tack lesson material to the wall.
I also rearranged the furniture to fit better. The table was opposite what it is in this picture and it was in the way of the door. This works much better!
I don't think I ever did a post with pictures from my classroom so I just wanted to show you guys these cute children I hung from the ceiling. I made them one year for VBS and they had been in storage for a couple of years since then. I decided that I might as well use them now and not wait for whatever. They are too cute!
There are also two bulletin boards in the foyer (or the vestibule as one member calls it) that hadn't been changed since we've been here. I decided they needed a facelift. I really love these flowers! They came with smaller flower that you can put pictures in. I kept those for another time since this bulletin board is full!
This is the second bulletin board. This isn't my favorite set, but Russ loved it! It came with several more pieces, but as you can see, this was all that would fit. I still think it turned out nice.
So there you have it. I am going to go to bed. I have to be bright eyed and bushy tailed for church services in the morning!

I would like to create the Fruit of the Spirit bulletin board. It looks great! Where did you get the decorations for it?

The Keys set is also from oriental Trading. They may not carry it anymore since I ordered these over 3 years ago.
