It's important to hang photos of the students in your class as well - it gives them a sense of ownership and pride. Why not have them take their own photos to add - what a fun way to see through their eyes. A 'Family Photo Board' helps to make a child feel secure and eases their longing for home when they miss Mom and Dad.
Adding the children's photo onto bulletin boards gives the children a great giggle - it's fun to see their faces when they discover they are part of the theme that month!
Why not use real photos to present a theme?
