Brilliant Bulletin Board - Cold Harbor Elementary School

When it comes to bulletin boards, the librarian in Cold Harbor Elementary school in Mechanicsville VA is brilliant! JP's own Sandy Leonard was thrilled to come across the bulletin boards pictured here on one of her visits to the school. What is so impressive about these boards? The fact that the librarian put them up in an effort to help the students make connections to the classroom learning in an open environment. Says Ms. Leonard, "The questions on the boards make the students think without teacher direction, and help them make personal connections to their learning as well as increased student interest in areas they might not have otherwise pursued." 

For example, one board was about Nelson Mandela. There were quotes from him and the students were asked to tell, in their own words, what he meant by that quote or what they would do if they were in his place. Students then posted their responses on the board. Another board was about the planets and what students would weigh or what age would they be if they were on a certain planet. The librarian had a calculator and the equation for figuring out the problem and a conversion chart for each planet. Again, the students were able to post their answers on the board.

JP sends our biggest congratulations to Cold Harbor Elementary for coming up with such a fabulous idea. Like we said, BRILLIANT!
