Math Motivation Classroom Posters – Made 4 Math

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…

  1. Hi!
    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.

      • 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! 🙂

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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! 🙂
