I like to have a bulletin board that is designed by my new class each year. This year I have taken a clipart image of a fishbowl and blown it up on the overhead projector. I traced the image onto a huge sheet of white bulletin board paper and then painted in the water and sand. As my class comes in on the first day of school, they find blank pieces of paper on their new desks and are instructed to design a colorful fish with their names in the center. Once the fish are colored and cut out, I staple them onto the fishbowl and give the bulletin board the title "School's In". Now all the names of the students in my class are displayed. ** Once the bulletin board is taken down, I hand back the nametag fish and the students glue them onto their portfolios.
