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)!

  • What’s your go-to teacher outfit? Mine is almost always a dress because it’s SO easy! It’s one piece, and you’re done! 💕 I also love dressing up for school because it puts me in a good mood - what can I say ...? I love a cute outfit! 😘
  • Double tap if you agree 💕 ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I had an aspiring teacher DM me the other day to day she was second guessing her decision to go into education ...⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The reason? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
That she felt like she wasn’t creative enough or that she wasn’t good enough because of all of the incredibly creative teachers that she’s seen on Instagram. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And you know what? That made me really sad. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Because teaching is not all that Instagram shows in any capacity whatsoever. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And I told her all you really need to know that first year of teaching is that you need to love your kids and be kind to them. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Above all else that is the most important.⁣
⁣
So with that ... Love your kids and be kind 😘 ⁣
⁣
Love you guys!
