Review: Winter Wonderland Student Writing Bulletin Board Set
on Teachers Pay Teachers

is a premium download from Teachers Pay Teachers. The packet includes all the
basics for teachers to pull together a display board for student writing (except
for a backing paper and maybe a border, if desired). The color pages provide an

assignments related to the Winter Wonderland theme.

nearly endless creative writing possibilities.

winter bulletin board, though. The quotations around “wonder" could just as

of the materials told us in an email that her intention for this bulletin board
is to display
