A rainbow is a sign of hope, and spreading kindness like sunshine is the way to go, both in and outside the classroom. For this themed bulletin board, you don’t need many teacher supplies; just some construction paper, scissors, and tape will do to bring the magic of Spring into your classroom.

We love the motivating message accompanying the board and that students can play a “hand” in putting it together.

Mindfulness is an essential element of a well-rounded social-emotional learning curriculum.
