Some bulletin board projects lend themselves well to involving all students. Others require only limited involvement by the kids. I've provided ideas for both levels of involvement in the projects section.

A LONG time ago *grin*, my grade three teacher had four colored recipe boxes in the back of the classroom. These boxes contained 5 minute, 10 minute, 15 minute and 30 minute projects. The recipe cards had a colored border around them that matched the color of the box (she just glued a recipe card onto a slightly larger piece of colored cardstock to create this border). When a student was done their homework, the teacher would tell them to go take a card from one of the boxes (she would choose the box based on how much class time was left). The card would give directions on where to get materials and what the project was.
Create the basic bulletin board yourself, using your own or a past year's artwork. The work you put on the board provides a sample for the children to view when doing the project this year. Throughout the month, rotate in artwork created by this year's students. Over a two or three month period, make sure that each student has had something displayed on the bulletin board. Swap as often as needed to accomplish this goal.
