But I had this brilliant idea that I needed to have an Inside Out bulletin board. The rest of my classroom is color coded with primary colors (and perfectly matches the movie characters... and not on purpose) and I've already started to incorporate the characters in the classroom.
So when I had this idea to start bringing more of Inside Out into my classroom, I knew a bulletin board was a must.

So I got on Pinterest (because, you know, everything is on Pinterest!)... but I didn't find anything. Nothing! I know, that's a first, right!? But I did find inspiration in the form of this movie poster:
Enter my finished bulletin board:
Bulletin Board Paper:
I used regular bulletin board paper and just measured it out so that the strips would be even.
Character Clip Art:
I purchased movie clip art online. Each character took up one full page and Riley was 4 pages wide by 3 pages tall (I printed her poster size). I created the memory orbs. You can grab them free here.
The yellow border is from Creative Teaching Press. You can order it here. It's called Painted Palette Ombre Yellow Scallops. The blue border is just a sparkley blue border from Lakeshore Learning. I chose sparkley because of how the emotions glow in the movie.
Emotion Synonym Cards:
I created these myself. You can grab them for free here.
Have you been using Inside Out in your classroom to talk about Emotions?
