By Teachers, For Teachers
With so much creative decor going up in classroom around the country, TeachHUB wants to celebrate these decorating educators with the December Bulletin Board Bonanza.
Here are 10 original, awesome bulletin boards & classroom displays for the holiday and winter season.
Rudolph in the Dark Bulletin Board
Low on artistic ability, creativity or time? Try this clever holiday-inspired bulletin board.
Penguin Sledding Book Bulletin Board
These little penguins are just too cute and perfectly themed for the winter season. The sledding adds a little action while encouraging students to curling up with a good book.

Flying Into the New Year Bulletin Board
While everyone else is focusing on the holidays, why not look forward? Reinvigorate students for the new year with as they fly, or soar, into 2011. Students can design their own balloons to save you the work of making it all yourself.

Snowboarding Santa Door Display
This award-winning door decoration brought together a Texas teacher and all her third period classes to make their Santa shred. What a cool way to make the big man in motion!

Don't Get Snowed Under Bulletin Board
Keep students on task with this fun wintery themed board. You could even get students involved by having them add shovels or snow flakes with time management strategies written on them.

Gingerbread House Bulletin Board with Gingerbread Man Glyphs
This hallway-filling holiday display is a real treat! Not only is it a holiday-neutral, adorable idea, but it integrates education as students create glyphs to decorate their gingerbread men.

Holidays Recycled Door Decoration
This earth-friendly inspiration comes from the University of Maryland, but could easily be turned into a K-12 recycling project. Just as in this library contest, your students will be challenged to decorate their doors using only recycled products.
Writing Up a Snowstorm Bulletin Board
Shake up writing assignments with this project display. Whether students write about their favorite snowy adventure or a seasonal poem, the snow globe display will add some fun to the writing project.
Making Tracks to the Library Bulletin Board
There's something I just love about this simple library bulletin board. The texture of the cottony-snow tracks brings the scene to life and makes the warmed hallways leading the library a lot more inviting.

Teaching Nutrition through Naughty & Nice Stocking Display
This PE project provides a lesson in healthy eating for students as they pass the display every day. It's a daily reminder during the holiday season to eat healthy and stay active whether Santa's watching or not.

Winter Fun Bulletin Board
This winter wonderland bulletin board combines a simple idea with unbelievable execution. The display also references the book Happy Winter by Karen Gundersheimer and lets students add their own winter fun ideas with the surrounding snow balls.
