My students insist on calling my "Famous People: Wise Words" bulletin board "Wise Dead Guys", despite many attempts to convince them that not all of these people are dead, but at least they get the basic idea behind it! I start the year with these nine posters and challenge students to bring me quotes to add to it them from people they learn about throughout the year. It ends up being quite the favorite, and inspirational, board!
Famous quotes can be a great way to motivate students in your classroom. In my classroom, I hang a new quote each Monday and we discuss it as a class. Many of the quotes teach students to never give up, use their imaginations, be unique, or be a friend. 36 quotes included in color. There are also black and white versions.- $5.75.
