Walk-Up Song Bulletin Board Kit

Walk-Up Song Bulletin Board Kit

Free bulletin board decoration for the beginning of the school year! Introduce to your students the idea of a “walk-up song” in baseball, let them select an appropriate song that inspires them, and then have them decorate a boombox with lyrics and designs that define their personality and their passions. This quick activity is great for getting to know your class as the school year kicks off!


Print and hang this inspirational door greeting for open house or the first day of school! :) My school's colors are green and black, but you can edit this document with your own school colors. I've also edited the original quote to make it more language arts appropriate, but you could easily swap out words to make it work for math & science!

Classroom Library Book Genre Labels

Classroom Library Book Genre Labels

Use these free genre labels to organize your classroom library! Just print, cut, and stick onto each book's spine using a small piece of book tape. If school has already started for you, this could be a great activity for students to complete to help them review genres :)
