I love Pinterest and have been pinning great posters and quotes every since I joined. But, there is nothing I hate more than clicking on a link that doesn’t take me to the pinned item or WORSE, takes me to the dreaded Teachers Pay Teachers site. Ugh.
So, since I just bought my very own laminator, I decided to make my own posters and post them here AND on Pinterest, for FREE, in PDF form. These are not fancy posters, as I do not have fun borders. But, they are the things I want to say in my classroom.
As part of my first day (or first week) activities, I am going to have my student read all of my posters, pick their favorite one, and then write why it is their favorite poster and what they think it means. I don’t want the kids to not notice or even think about these posters on my wall. They are here for a reason.
Without further ado…
I just wanted to let you know that I love your blog and I can tell that you are a great teacher by what you write! For some reason I don’t see a link for your posters…and also I wanted to offer to re-create them for you with “fun borders”, I have lots of borders! Please let me know!
Here is a link to some posters that I made so you can see…it does lead you to the dreaded teachers pay teachers, but the posters are free.
Thanks so much! But, I have to create an account to download even the free stuff. Do you have a blog that you post your work on for other teachers?
I do have a blog and the link above takes you to the blog post about the posters, but these unfortunately are not available from my blog (I do have lots of things that are though :)).
BTW, Creating an account at teachers pay teachers is totally free and there is TONS of great free stuff! 🙂
OH, I see the posters now after leaving a comment! 🙂 Very nice!
I don’t see the pdf files either. When I click on the posters I am only getting a jpg file.
common typo alert: on the ‘fake’ poster, the first “your” should be “you’re” – sorry to be the bearer of bad news
Oh! Thanks so much! I know that, can’t believe I missed it. Trying to get too much done before I go back to school tomorrow. Thank you!
no problem – thought you would want to know! I hear you on the trying to get too much done …
these are great! thanks for sharing,
Great posters! I have been doing the same thing on Pinterest and spent a few hours over the last week finding out which ones were printable and which ones I had to recreate…you just saved me some time. I will be posting the ones I create this week on my new blog. Thanks!
Love your posters! And I love that you are going to have students read them and write a reponse! I don’t want to decorate my room and have students not even notice what is there!
I made a few posters of my own as well. Don’t have my own laminator ! So I uploaded my designs at Costco, and printed them out as enlarged photos – gives a good glossy sheen and heavy paper. I’ve been trying to think of something for “made4mathmonday” … might have to share my posters as well!
Please do! I would love more posters for my room. I was looking for an effort vs ability one but couldn’t find one.
These are so awesome! I love them! Thanks so much for sharing!!

I really like these, I’m a big advocate of the it’s okay to make mistakes idea Thanks =D
can’t see any links for pdfs btw ……
Click on the pictures, then underneath the picture click on the link (I think it says make this picture full sized?). Then it’s the full sized file in its own window.
Thanks so much for sharing these! Like you, I have been so frustrated with the pinterest links, but lack the skills needed to come up with them on my own!
You’re welcome! I don’t have many skills either, which is why mine are plain. 🙂

The posters are awesome! Thanks so much for sharing!
Thank you!! 🙂
Love the posters! My classroom experience is centered on using language to explain conceptual understanding. A natural component of that is reflection. The written response component is right up my alley!
Do you have a pdf or high res of the Neil Gaiman quote poster? It’s so perfect for our school’s push this year 🙂
Yes! I need to upload it. First week is
School has been…busy. 🙂
You all are right – they are jpegs! So sorry! If I have time I will convert them to PDF’s. I’ve been overwhelmed with two new preps and a new school – and school hasn’t even started yet! 🙂
Thanks a lot for these posters, good for motivation in my classroom in New Caldonia
I just found this website and the posters are awesome! They fit right in with the message I and my co-author are trying to send with a series of correct- and error-based problems we wrote for math students. Thank you so much for sharing them. Have a wonderful day!
