Plastic table covers for Bulletin Boards. They are bright year to year without fading, and it saves some trees. And cheaper than fabric! I don't know if you have any bulletin boards Lane but this is neat.
Put red no circles around old thoughts too. Change your Words, Change your Mind bulletin board.this could also be redone with growth mindset and fixed mindset thoughts for teachers and placed in a teacher work area!
I would add student writing on an index card with perhaps why they chose that cover to make it more student centered. Love the idea. * could also change it to say "but here's my writing" and display student writing samples
