It all started at the end of the school year. My students were helping me take down our posters and displays, and they were clamoring for the quote posters that accompany my Character Building Calendar Cards
resource. I couldn’t decide how to fairly share the posters. I could place them in my end of year auction, I could pull student names or numbers at random, or…. Wait! I had an idea! I would make all of the Maya Angelou quotes (the most popular) into miniposters. I came home and got to work. Since there were three Angelou quotes in the Calendar resource, I added a fourth and this product was born!
I was so excited to share the miniposters with all who wanted them to display in their bedrooms or scrapbooks. While printing the posters, I remembered that I needed thank you notes for all of the end of year teacher gifts that I had received, and decided to make note cards out of my favorite quote.
Then I started to think that all of the quotes would make great note cards to use throughout the year to let a student know that a change in attitude or behavior, an act of kindness, or reaching for a goal was noticed. This is how my little overnight miniposter project grew to include full size posters, miniposters, and notecards, both printed and blank, in full color and grayscale.
I hope you will love sharing this resource with your class as much as I have loved sharing it with mine!
