How To Display Classroom Posters in The Classroom
Display classroom posters in a large pocket chart: This very large clear pocket chart holds posters for students to clearly see them. It can also be used to store your classroom posters.
Hang classroom posters from felt strip boards: Felt strip boards are mounted on the wall by their peel and stick backing. They come with push pins fo you to hang up posters on the felt board sides.
Use clear acrylic table sign holders to display posters on tables: I discovered that a teacher was using these sign holders in her classroom to display lab directions. The transparency of the acrylic is excellent, allowing for clear visibility of information from both sides.
Clip posters in a chicken wire bulletin board frame: A chicken wire frame allows you to clip the posters on any spot, and the posters can be easily unclipped and repositioned.
Display classroom posters in dry-erase pockets: The use of dry-erase sleeves is one of the most common ways to display classroom posters.
Hang posters on a line and clip system: With a steel line and clip system, you only have to screw it into the wall on the two ends. Numerous posters can be added to the line using the clips.
Frame your classroom posters for upper grades: This is a good option for displaying posters that you want to keep displayed all year. It is recommended for older students because it looks more grown up and sophisticated, and also because older students will not feel the need to interfere with them.
Use magnetic pockets to hang posters: These pockets are a lot like dry erase sleeves with the added feature of magnetic backings for them to stay on your whiteboard. The entire back panel is magnetic. You can easily slip your posters into them.
