Creating a 'Love Notes' Board in Your Classroom

My students love to write me 'love notes' and draw me pictures (as I am sure all of yours do).  By the end of the day I have a small pile on my desk and I have no idea what to do with them!! So, I decided to create a 'love notes' board. 
 I love our classroom 'love notes' board and it is simple to make! I bought 4 cork boards from Jo-Ann's Fabric (they are also magnetic) and put them onto my wall using double sided sticky tape.  Yep, I said it!  Double sided sticky tape.  And it stayed up all year!  We aren't allowed to staple or nail into our walls so this solution worked perfectly. 
My students love this board just as much as I do.  I love displaying their 'love notes' and pictures on the wall for everyone to see and they love seeing their artwork displayed as well!  It makes them feel special just as they make me feel everyday!!

  1. Love this idea! I was going to make a "Love Notes" binder this summer to keep all my notes/pictures in. But, I really love the idea that they can see them displayed. I totally agree with you, they will feel so special seeing their creations displayed. Thanks so much for sharing.

  5. I love this idea! I usually tape them to my metal file cabinets because it dresses them up a bit.. but I love how modern it looks with the cork board for sure! =) Plus it contains it to one areas that is smaller in size! Great idea!

  6. This is a great idea! Now I don't have to "file" all the cute papers the children give me!

  8. I love the idea of your Love Notes board! I hang my "notes" by my desk but it always seems to be overrun with the notes!! Question for you.. Do you leave all your notes up all year or do you change them out? How do you decide which ones to change???
    I am just starting my blogging journey and my TPT store so please feel free to visit my site and let me know what you think! I'm always looking for ways to improve:)
    Thanks for all of your amazing posts!!
