3. Light it Up Inspirational Quote Writing
Are you a multitasker? If so, you’ll understand why I use these science, character education, figurative language and writing lessons, all wrapped in one! Our science time is extended into writing and character education when we discuss quotes, idioms and sayings. These four inspirational quotes focus on light, and the figurative language of light, darkness and seeing with the heart.

Each prompt includes:
1. Grayscale poster
2. Full Color Poster
3. Print friendly version (perfect for reduced sized in Interactive Note Books)
4. Prewrite graphic organizer
5. Organizer with writing space
6. Quote with writing space

Light it Up Quotes:
1. Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. Bishop Desmond Tutu
2. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller
3. There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. Edith Wharton
4. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King Jr.

Teacher Tips
1. Class Discussion - Place the full page poster on chart paper and conduct a class discussion prior to writing.
2. Post-it Ideas - Use 3 colors of post-it notes for students interacting with the three questions found in the graphic organizer.
3. Large Poster - Later, I usually choose 3-4 of the post-its in each category to make a whole-class poster, including the student’s name who suggested the idea. This makes a nice centerpiece on a bulletin board for their final writing.
4. Writing About Character Quotes - Three levels of difficulty are included – 1. With graphic organizer and sentence frame support. 2. With graphic organizer, but without supports. 3. No supports and room to illustrate a personal connection.
5. Mini Posters - Print the poster size multiple times on one page. The small posters are great for interactive notebooks. Students make a web of ideas coming from the mini-poster; use it for the rough draft; or have students make their own ways to interact with the quote.
