Product Description

"Keep the Quote" is an idea ALL over instagram and Pinterest that I wanted to try implementing in my own classroom. This product contains 50 motivating quotes that will allow students to think and reflect upon their own actions and character. A response journal is included for all 50 quotes. Two different formats are included, so you can choose what works best for you and your class! KEEP THE QUOTE is an excellent reflective character building activity!

What's Included in this Resource

  • 50 Motivational Quotes
  • Response Journals
    • Format 1: Each quote has a 1 page journal entry with a "think about it" and "apply it" section for reflection & writing
    • Format 2: Each quote has a 2 page journal entry template for each day of the week Monday-Friday
      • Motivation Monday- What does the quote mean to you & why is it important?
      • Talk about it Tuesday- How a person you know or book character exemplifies the quote (Great way to make a connection to reading!)
      • Wordy Wednesday- 3-5 words that would describe a person who exemplifies the quote (GREAT for building vocabulary related to character!)
      • Think about it Thursday- Self reflection: what have you done this week or in the past that exemplifies the quote?
      • Friendly Nomination Friday- Nominate a classmate to "keep the quote"

  • Nomination Forms: If using format 1, give each student a nomination form at the end of the week to nominate which classmate should "keep the quote".
  • Bulletin Board Letters: Large letters that spell "Keep the Quote" in TWO different fonts. (Recommended: print on cardstock for durability)

How I use in my Classroom

All students have a small 1-inch binder dedicated entirely to the "Quote of the Week".

Each monday, I hang a new speech-bubble quote on our bulletin board and give each student the Monday-Friday response sheet with the quote of the week on it. Each day, students take a quick 5-10 minutes to respond to the prompt of the day. We often share our responses as a portion of our morning meeting. During quiet time on Friday afternoons, I look through the classroom nominations and decide which student will get to keep the quote. At the very end of the day, I will award one student to "keep the quote" and read aloud a nomination form, or forms, supporting the decision. Before the student takes the quote home with him/her, I take a picture of him/her holding the quote. I print the pictures and hang them on the "Keep the Quote" bulletin board in my classroom!

New quotes will be added to this product overtime! If you have any quotes you would like me to add, please send me a message!!
