Last year for March I did a Rainbow coming from a pot of gold but instead of gold it had fruits and vegetables in it and it said "taste a rainbow of colors" and had some info on eating fruits/vegetables of different colors and what each offers in terms of nutrients. Something like that. If I can find a picture I will post it
My whiteboard is split in half right now. One side talks about the importance of sleep and 5 ideas for better sleep. The other side is on Stress, signs of stress, things that fight stress, and ways to deal with stress. Of course, I deal with middle school and high school kids and these two topics are revisited often in my office . March is a tough month as there are no long weekends and it feels like it lasts forever.
100kids - love your office, sounds like it was a colorful and beautiful board!
i did something similar to 100kids based off the 5-a-day eat a rainbow of fruits and veggies campaign from Dole from a few years back. I made a rainbow with pictures of the examples of the fruits and veggies suggested for the colors and made a pot of gold. The pot of gold was "a healthy and happy you" or something like that. I don't know if Dole still sponsors the eat a rainbow campaign but plenty of others have taken the idea and run with it:Healthy Eating Games and Award Winning Nutrition for Kids
My clinic is decorated with the Muppets, so next month I'm doing "healthy foods with the Swedish Chef".
I'll be honest though, I didn't even do any bulletins boards until this month. I had generic lice, hand-washing, and CPR information out, but it was just so not a priority for my first few months in the school setting! It's kind of nice to reach a point where I don't feel like I'm drowning, and can take time to do something fun.
