Every teacher at my school has a bulletin board outside their
classroom. I planned mine for the month of October to celebrate the Jewish New
Year Rosh Hashanah. I cut out a big bush from green bulletin board paper taped
it low to a wall and had round sponges to resemble apples. Each student sponge
painted a couple of apples at a time. When it dried I stapled it to the bulletin
board where I had a trunk pre-cut and a bright blue background to resemble the
sky. To practice cutting, I took rectangles of green paper and drew a line along
the bottom the width of a ruler. Each child took a rectangle and cut lines about
1cm apart starting from the top and stopped at the line I had marked. This
created grass that I stapled along the bottom of the bulletin board under the
tree. Next, I cut out triangles on gold paper. Then the kids glued two triangles
together to resemble the Star of David. They were the stars in the sky for our
apple tree. Now when we line up everyone stands under our apple tree!
