The aim of this study was to raise the awareness of pre-school teacher candidates within the framework of media literacy the importance of which has been noticed recently in Turkey and which has attracted attention of academic circles as a research topic. In addition, by providing opportunities for pre-school candidates to design materials on this topic, it also aimed to help them practice what they know and internalize the information they would obtain on media literacy. In this regard, the article introduces the notice board practices of media literacy theme performed by teacher candidates for pre-school students and their parents. Teacher candidates made their own choices on designing notice boards either for children or for their parents. Encouraging candidates to design such notice boards and to use them in training and then in their professional life is extremely important for them both to discover their own creativity and to develop their hand skills. Moreover, dealing with the media literacy theme and expecting them to develop materials by informing the candidates on this issue is a step taken towards raising the awareness of teacher candidates who will educate future generations. From this point of view, it could be recommended to provide practices on board and material development and use within the framework of media literacy theme through in-service seminars for teachers currently continuing their professional life; and to share functional teaching materials among teachers on various platforms (conferences, congress, workshops etc.).
