Most classrooms have at least 3/4 noticeboards. This is a quick post about how to make useful displays and what to include on them.
Fade proof paper – this is very effective and costs about 7 euro a roll. Get another adult to help you to measure and cut it then staple it down (open the stapler fully), add a few thumbtacks to secure.
Borders around the edges also make it look nice.
Borders and fade proof paper make displays appealing and interesting to look at.
You also need a sign for each display. This differentiates one display from another.
