Thinking Hats Interactive Bulletin Board

Last year I wanted to be sure that the Thinking Hats were visible in my classroom so we could utilize them as much as possible.

I created this bulletin board to make that possible:




The hats are a thin plastic from Party City that allowed me to punch a hole in them, tie a string through that, and attach it to a thumb tack. 

They are next to the chants I typed up thanks to a very clever colleague of mine! The chants helped my students to remember what type of thinking each hat represented.

If you'd like to check out the Thinking Hats Chants Posters, click the picture below:

On another note, if you are wanting to connect with other classrooms across the world this upcoming school year, you will want to fill out the form by clicking the button below:

Global Classrooms

We have 43 teachers across all grade levels and 2 continents who would like to Skype, write, blog, Tweet or do some kind of project with other classrooms. You can read more about it here.

Hope you're enjoying these last few weeks of summer!

Such a great idea! How did you use the hats? Did you take them off the wall and give them to students when they used a certain type of thinking? I think I might go out and buy some hats for my room!

Yup! We took them down to hold or wear when using that type of thinking.
