Romeo and Juliet Bulletin Board – Easy and Interactive

March 3, 2019 2 min read

This is a quick and easy post that walks you closely through how I set up my Romeo and Juliet Bulletin Board for our reading of the play.

Although I have my bulletin boards set up as three separate ones, you absolutely could do this within one bulletin board and just use washi tape if you’d like to create a separation between the three categories.

I wanted it to be a bit easier for my students to keep track of which character is a part of which family and who was who, so this interactive bulletin board was just the trick to do that!

My Romeo and Juliet Bulletin Board

Romeo and Juliet Bulletin Board Idea

First, I cut out the letters for each of the categories (none, Capulet, and Montague). Instead of cutting out the letters completely, I just printed four big letters per sheet and cut a square around the letter – MUCH easier than trying to cut around the actual letter, itself!

Second, I typed up and printed out the names of all of the characters from the play. I chose to do a scripted font just to break up the text a little bit.

None Characters:

  • Prince Escalus
  • Mercutio (you could also add him to the Montague side!)
  • Paris (you could also add to Capulet side!)
  • Friar Lawrence
  • Apothecary
  • The Chorus
  • Fr. John

Capulet Characters:

  • Juliet
  • Capulet
  • Lady Capulet
  • Tybalt
  • Nurse
  • Samson + Gregory
  • Peter

Montague Characters:

  • Romeo
  • Montague
  • Lady Montague
  • Benvolio
  • Balthazar

I also printed out images from the Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes film and put those on each of the bulletin boards 🙂

Third, I had the students interact with the bulletin board by writing down notes with characterizations of each character as we learned more about them throughout the reading of the play.

Now students have a place where they can easily supplement their notes from class with the help of their classmates. Talk about an easy and effective bulletin board (love it when that happens)!

  • This honestly might be my favorite tip I’ve EVER come across on IG. EVER!!! 🤗🤗🤗 It’s from my friend Melissa @readingandwritinghaven ⁣
It’s meant to ensure you’re not teaching writing genres in isolation. KEY 👌🏼 ⁣
Here’s how it works:⁣
- Take a topic and put it in the middle⁣
- Brainstorm possible titles or questions related to that topic that could be addressed in different genres ⁣
- Give students choice and have them pick 1-2 genres to write ⁣
Honestly. Brilliant. ⁣
Thanks @readingandwritinghaven !! And if you aren’t a fan of Melissa yet, you definitely should be 😘♥️
  • It’s about this time of year that I always seem to think about quitting. Every year. Without fail. ⁣
And I think it’s because it’s the hardest part. ⁣
Just like how at the gym you think there’s no way in HECK you can do that last push-up or that last squat. ⁣
May is that last lunge. ⁣
But I remind myself every time, that I’ve left teaching twice only to be MISERABLE. ⁣
The grass almost always looks greener. But it’s not always greener. ⁣
Just take care of yourself, let things go, give every piece of effort, and then enjoy your summer knowing you reached deep within yourself to make it there. ⁣
And make it there happily, filled with contentment. ⁣
Happy Friday in May, friends. Love you guys 😘 📸 @carlacoulson
  • Tell me what you’re teaching right now 👇🏼 Seriously! Let’s get a catalogue of awesome content, so we can all learn from each other!⁣
I’m currently teaching a fan favorite “The Cask of Amontillado” - the irony, the foreshadowing, the evil soul of Montressor ... it is SO GOOD. ⁣
Anyhow, we’re still trucking along to the end! Keeping it interesting and engaging with great lit!⁣
Love you guys 😘 Keep up the good work!
  • When is your bedtime? Because please tell me I’m not the only one 🙋🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ (I might even change that to 8:30 at this point 😆).⁣
Happy Monday, friends 💕 ⁣
Let’s kick this week off with a bang! I’ve got an awesome podcast episode coming out tomorrow with my friend, Holly @researchandplay and next week’s episode is going to be *JUST* what you need to hear this time of year. ⁣
Love you guys! 😘
  • My Mom’s best advice ...?⁣
Life is short. Drink the Chardonnay. Eat the carbs. Travel the world 😂😘 (Which is precisely what we’re doing in this pic from our last trip to Italy together) ♥️ Gotta love her. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
Happy Mother’s Day! I am a proud momma to my little William and two furry boys, Charlie and Huckleberry 👶🏼🐕🐕 and just want to celebrate all the women in our lives - whether you are a mom, hoping to become a mom, or don’t have the desire to be a mom. ⁣
Women are amazing!⁣
What’s your mom’s best advice?
  • Double tap if this students’ response was on point and made you laugh 😂😆 Honestly this is one of my favorite IG posts I’ve ever seen! Thanks @helloteacherlady for spreading the laughs 🤗
