I love designing posters, it’s fun for me. The layout of fonts and choosing eye catching colors is relaxing…even more so when I am making posters when I SHOULD be doing other things for school. 🙂
I will add to this blog entry any other new posters I create this year. I had a list of what I wanted to make, but couldn’t find it when I started working on these so I will get to them later. If there are any you want to see created, let me know!
First…I saw a post in a group of someone’s door to their classroom that said in vinyl “Calculate kindness into every day.” and I fell in love with it!! However, I currently don’t have vinyl to add it to my door, students peeled off the vinyl I had on the door last year and I wasn’t about to cut out all the letters and tape them to the door. So…a poster I must make! In the file linked below (click on the picture), there are quite a few PDF color options and different calculators for you to choose from. For me, I can get this printed poster size through my district and tape it to the wall or door or put it somewhere else. I do like the idea of having it be something my students see while outside my classroom before they enter, so we will see where I decide to put it!
The second poster I made was because of one I saw @cheesemonkeysf had added above her calculator caddy. I have a similar caddy and am happy to borrow out calculators, but they are also supposed to leave a shoe in my classroom….yet they forget many times. That’s how I ended up 4 calculators short at the end of the year last year, they had walked off never to return. I found a few at goodwill this summer so I have enough now if every students needs to borrow one. We use Desmos all the time in my classroom, but sometimes they need the handheld.

8/22/18 – I saw a tweet by @fastcrayon WAAAYY back in July and “saved it” on Twitter by liking the tweet. I finally came back around to it as I was going through my likes. The second I saw this I KNEW it needed to be a poster. So I created some…there are THREE different versions below, including some that have it all on one page. Hopefully you will find something you can use for your classroom!
8/26/18 – I made two new posters that focus on Growth Mindset and Grit in the classroom. I’ve seen the YET bulletin boards, but my bulletin board space is limited, so I wanted a poster instead. The second one uses some exit slip questions I want my students to refer to daily.
9/1/18 – Another Growth Mindset poster in two styles. Click on the graphic to access the printable PDF.
9/2/18 – I was on a roll during my relaxing Labor Day weekend and cranked out TEN more posters that were on my to make list. The links to the FREE printable PDF files are under the snapshots. Enjoy!
