Teacher Week: Not Your Mama's Posters


We've all seen it. That horrid poster that talks about "what won't matter in 10 years". Yes, the words that are printed on it are true but I feel like its just a little 10 years ago. As I set out on a journey of what in the world to do in my classroom I kept being met by one cliche poster after another. They were either too elementary or too lame. I don't know about you but I don't do lame. So I took matters into my own hands. 

Oh and theses aren't just for a classroom these little motivational reminders might be just what your office needs!

You can download any of these files by clicking on the highlighted links and save them to your computer/desk top and get them printed from any of your local printers such as The FedEx Store or even Walgreens/Walmart. 

Pin your favorites so we can continue the sharing! 

Personally I plan on laminating some and framing some of these prints! 
I think I have finally landed on a color scheme for this year....

Lindsay @ Trial By Sapphire said...

I love these, Meg! Nice work! I think your students will love them.

All right. Call me crazy, but I need you to explain the "3 before me" on the mustache poster. What am I not getting? I'm going to blame this on being sick yesterday, crashing out for 2+ hours as soon as I got home, and still feeling ill today. Yes. I will blame it on sickness. ;-)

its a pretty popular saying for teachers.
Its more like -- I just gave directions so if you have a question you need to ask the people around you. It helps with the kids immediately asking questions about directions that were given .5 seconds before their hand went up!

I so sorry your sick! Feel better friend!!

so fun. you know, when I was in college I still remember calling my dad and talking to him about majors. I was thinking about changing my major to education and he asked me why. I said "because it would be so fun to decorate a classroom". ha! true story.
