Lately we have had requests for some pretty amazing themes for classroom bulletin boards! Ranging from fruit patterns to campfire scenes or even frogs on Lilly pads (precious by the way)! We love creating these visions and helping teachers provide a beautiful learning environment for their students! But don't forget...this all takes only MINUTES! No, literally. Minutes. Click, Buy, Staple, and then Continue on with your well deserved Summer!

There's no better feeling than actually saying you are completely DONE setting up for the upcoming school year. We all know that us teachers really don't take a "two month break", but that dream could be possible now that the bulletin boards in your classroom were made and done for you with your themes and teaching needs in mind! So what are you waiting for?! Start shopping and decide which theme you will use this year!
We are so excited to have so many ideas coming our way this summer from our customers and social media followers! From experience, we know all too well how Teachers are incredibly hard working and not to mention, insanely creative people. So, we love hearing your theme ideas for our Ready-to-Roll bulletin boards.
Lately, we have had several requests for custom bulletin boards, which we love! Adding your own name, Grade, saying or a personal message on a bulletin board is the perfect way to give your classroom that personal and welcoming feeling! Above is an example of a bulletin board for a teacher who was looking for a simple chalkboard and burlap themed board for her students to display their 'Wow Work!'. We also recently had a request for a fairy-tale themed bulletin board collection, what great ideas!
For just $39.99 you can have your very own custom made bulletin board for your classroom this coming school year. You simply tell us your ideas and what you are envisioning and we send you a draft. Once we have found the perfect design, we ship it to you in no time! Happy decorating, teachers!
With Open House officially over and the end of the year being only a couple of weeks away, I am now off to another classroom! I have taken a position as a 1st/2nd combo teacher at another school in the district and I couldn't be more excited!
But, really...Who would be excited about packing up a classroom and setting up a new one? It's a lot of work, needless to say! Then again, it is kind of intriguing to think about a brand new space! Of course, we can't help but to think about how we will decorate our room, which theme will we go with, how will we arrange everything? Where will I hide all of my junk? A lot of planning this summer, that's for sure!
The one thing I won't be spending hours on though this summer? BULLETIN BOARDS. With our fun and bright ready-to-roll bulletin boards, All you need to do is click, buy, and up they go! I think this year I will go with my favorite boards (the Shabby Chic ones) and of course incorporate some of the seasonal/holiday ones throughout the year. Like the one below is so much fun when we do our culture unit in 2nd grade!
So, if you're like me and you're making a big move to a new classroom, or if you simply want to transform your classroom in under 15 minutes, then head on over to our shop, purchase one of our custom bulletin boards and get ready-to-roll! :)
With only 25 days to go until the end of the school year, teachers have a lot on their plates! Open House, report cards, end of the year projects, placements, so much and so little time! Then again, we all know that's a common feeling throughout the school year! :) None the less, teachers are some of the most creative people and we know how to end each year strong. One of the ways I feel the best about my work throughout the year is providing an environment that reflects my creativity. The basic bulletin board paper that most school provide are typically dull primary colors. I never quite felt 'unique' or 'special' when I looked at the walls of where my students and I spent each school day. Starting to create these Ready-to-Roll Classroom bulletin boards was a way for me to keep myself sane with the decor planning and applying in my classroom, by saving myself countless hours of stapling and measuring, but it also really made my classroom stand out. I have had teachers come in my room and see the bulletin boards I have made and the bulletin board paper that I use and are in shock at how something as small as polka dots or chevron paper can really make a classroom's atmosphere become something incredible. These bulletin boards aren't only the answer to saving precious time throughout the year, but they are also something to be proud of. So start searching our designs and take a stand against bland paper! Choose between fully customizable bulletin board designs and themes or opt for fun and chic bulletin board paper and check out our different patterns. Happy end of the year, teachers!
Yikes! Open House already??? This year has really flown by...Spring Break has come to an end, report cards have been sent home and the time has come to wrap up the year! But first...open House...
The night where parents come to see your hard work! Oh and the kid's hard work :) So this year, we really want to make planning for this big night a breeze. Having Classroom bulletin boards that can showcase your student's work while making your classroom feel bright and new is a serious win-win in our books. But, it gets better. I know, unbelievable. We now are giving you the chance to customize your bulletin boards. Above, you can see Ms. Olson's Class reads across the banner. Have your name and reuse your personal bulletin board for Open House every year!
Us teachers know that we spend hours after school cutting, gluing and stapling, preparing for this big night in hopes that our students and their families are overwhelmed with excitement when they walk in the room. This year is guaranteed to make them feel just that with your Liv & learn® Bulletin Boards! Start customizing now to get yours in time!
Pinterest has to be every teachers' life saver. From lessons, to crafts, to classroom decor, it's a game changer.
I was recently on Pinterest searching for some ideas on 'Nautical Themed' Bulletin Boards, when I came across some burlap bulletin boards, genius by the way. I started to think about other textures and materials that could be used as backdrops for our classroom bulletin boards: Burlap, Wood panels, wallpaper etc. The possibilities are endless! Adding these different elements to a classroom can easily make the theme go from shabby to chic. But we'll make that job simple for you! Check out our Shabby Chic bulletin boards now and get started on your classroom transformation!
Now that we are transforming classrooms one by one, we started to think about using these boards at home, in businesses or really...anywhere!
Teachers are using these bulletin boards to make their classroom unique and fun and of course doing so while saving time and money. So shouldn't everyone else be able to also? YES.
So, why not do the same for other parts of life? Birthdays, anniversaries, parties, graduations, etc. These Ready-to-Roll bulletin boards can be used for essentially any event. We all know that any party can be easily enhanced with your typical balloons and streamers, but what about a bulletin board to really make that special someone's day?
With the option to customize your bulletin board's message and add a name you can really make your bulletin board something special.
So get started now with Liv and Learn and be the talk of your next party!
A couple of weeks ago, I was sitting in my classroom looking at my Ready-to-Roll bulletin boards up on my classroom walls. I love how they can really make any classroom feel so put together and give your walls that fun and creative flare! I get so excited just thinking about the new ones I will put up for Open House, which is coming up soon!
Each month, I create a new theme for my classroom door. As teachers, we know how much our students love seeing what new decorations we have for the room, especially before they even walk in the room and see the door completely decorated, welcoming them each day! As I started to think about creating a Spring theme for our classroom door, I thought, "Hm, I wish I could just use the same theme, colors and graphics that I have on my bulletin boards, it would really tie everything together." I had a serious "AHA!" moment. Why am I not creating Ready-to-Roll Door Boards? If we can easily make these for our classroom walls then we can certainly use them for our classroom doors too! I got started right away. I took the dimensions for my classroom door and designed a few different themes. I would spend at least a few hours on creating new classroom door decorations each month, but now...it's as simple as my bulletin boards on my walls. Click, buy, print and up they go.
