A super easy bulletin board to showcase student writing! Set it up in minutes. It’s as easy as pie!
From the creator:
“The black background is black fabric from Walmart – bulletin board GAME CHANGER!
The pie writing activity was from TPT – and the students got to choose which type of pie they wanted to create.”
How can you use this board with your students?
- Have students create a human tally chart to show whether pumpkin or apple is their favorite pie. Then, create the graph on chart paper or the board.
- Do a blindfold taste test of different types of pies and ask students to give words describing their pies – and then talking about adjectives.
- Create word problems together that have to do with pies. Ask students to partner up to create a couple more and write the correct answer on the back of the paper, then trade with other partner groups to figure out the answer and self-check.

Pies, Pies, Perfect Pies!
- Black fabric background: Easily changed out and can be reused over and over again.
- Brown craft paper: Looks like a branch when scrunched up.
- Leaf Cutouts: Keeping the fall theme set up.
- Construction paper: Mount student writing work on the varied fall colored pages.
Steps to Set Up:
- Place your black fabric on the empty board.
- Next, pull off a large sheet of the brown craft paper and gently scrunch it into a long roll. Then, staple it to a corner and “wave” it up or down a bit, and staple again. Continue in this process until the bulletin board border goes all the way around the board.
- Use the leaf cutouts to cover the staples from the brown craft paper “branches.”
- Mount student work onto red and yellow pieces of construction paper.
- Use the punch out letters to create your title: “_______ (grade) is as sweet as pie!” Position in the middle of your board.
- Angle the student work samples around the title to fill in the remaining board space.
Make fall fun with a writing assignment so sweet it’s sure to please and then display the sweet show of student success!
