|(This is a new one I bought for this school year!)|
- Much easier to hang.
- Fades less than paper (but also depends on the fabric).
- Looks more appealing and interesting.
- More durable than paper (you won't be re-hanging it year after year).
- Widely available in many musical patterns.
Yes, I know that buying fabric for bulletin boards may go against my efforts to always "make $ense" (or save money). My school does provide the paper, after all. But, I believe that when you do something very well, you save yourself time in the future because you won't have to re-do it. This is an area where I think that spending the extra money is worth it in the long run. This will be the seventh year for many of my fabrics, and they still look great...paper I used seven years ago would have been torn down and tossed long ago.
Speaking of bulletin boards, have you checked out musicbulletinboards.net? What a great resource for tons of bulletin board ideas to reinforce music! If you are at a loss for ways to cover your bulletin board space and connect your boards to your curriculum, this is a terrific place to start!
