5 Motivational Posters You Can Make for Your Home or Classroom, All While Consuming Hours of Your Favorite Guilty Pleasure TV Show Whose Name You’re Too Ashamed to Admit

Thursday, July 17, 2014



Well, I think the title of this post is sufficient as an explanation not only for the post itself, but for why my life is one giant contradiction.

I’m housesitting right now for my parents right now, and since they have a) lots of space in their home, b) art supplies, c) cable TV, I’ve been cranking out some posters for my classroom next year.  You should do the same! You will need:






Kiddie watercolors, brushes, watercolor paper (optional), a little plate for mixing, and a white crayon (optional). And a little test paper. Oh, and a pencil (not pictured).

THIS IS SO EASY, Y'ALL. I can't stress that enough. All you need to do is:

1) Pick a quote you want to use. 
2) Sketch out the quote on a piece of watercolor paper in pencil.
3) Paint over it in watercolor.
4) Erase the pencil.

What?! So easy. Here are some of the ones I've made recently:



Man, Amy Poehler is a total powerhouse. I love this quote, especially for my middle schoolers who try to act like they're allergic to silliness.


One of my favorite C.S. Lewis quotes I was reminded of recently.  I think the mark of a good classroom quote is something that you AND the kids benefit from reading.  The Lady fancied this version floating around on Pinterest, so she copied it.


This was so fun to make even though it took the longest!  I was inspired by Kid President, circus fonts, and Pinterest typography.


Oh, sweet, sweet Charlie. Excuse me while I go bawl my eyes out. 



This one's a little hard to read, but it says, "And above all, watch with glittering eyes the world around you." Roald Dahl wins again.  For this one, I wrote the quote first in white crayon (which is a little scary because you can't see it at ALL), then just painted over with watercolor. 

I'm telling you. So easy.

In other news, during my painting I saw a back-to-school shoe commercial.  IT'S JULY 17TH.  Just another thing that won't happen when I'm president.

What are some of your favorite quotes?

Love,

Teach

  3. At the end of the school year, I had my students create posters about reading and literature. Some of the quotes they chose were amazing:
    “Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” -John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

    "“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” - this one is accompanied by an amazing drawing of a dragon breathing fire.

    and my favorite, "We read to know we are not alone", which is accompanied by a drawing of Tris and Four from Divergent standing atop a building, holding hands, looking down at the world around them.

    And I, too, have spent most of my summer creating whimsical boards to hang around my classroom, while watching Torchwood.

  6. That third one looks like my favorite Katie Daisy stuff! I'm impressed! Love all these.

  7. I'm collecting quotes for my room, too. One I'm going to have for sure is from Anne Frank 'Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.'

    Also, avoid Walmart. They've got their school supplies front and center. 〒_〒

  9. I agree. You can definitely sell these little gems! Thanks for making me feel completely useless this summer! I haven't created anything whimsical for my classroom yet! Let's just say, now I've got some inspiration.

    Also, as terrible as it sounds, I only have two weeks of summer left. So I'm waiting for these back to school sales...only, I'm in need of some school supplies.

  12. Those look great! I loved the Poehler quote, and the Lewis quote too :). Also, when you become president, can you do something about how hard it is to get open candy bar packaging? Thanks!

  13. That's really a great idea! My sister is a teacher and was looking for decoration for her classroom and I will definitely send her the link to this post. She will love it! I'm thinking of doing some posters for my apartment, they look great!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I am currently doing the very same thing, for my very first classroom! I love love love Amy Poehler, and so I will definitely be using that quote, too.

    (I think yours look better than mine, though.)
