Quote on the week

At the end of the summer I posted pictures of my room and my quote board.  I have changed the quotes about once a week.  Unfortunately , I haven't taken a picture of each one, but I do have a fe pics to share.

I hoard quotes I like on a Pinterest board, and I choose the quotes partially based on my students, I consider what I think they need to hear.

I actually say this one a lot in class when student s point out my mistakes (typos and such).

For my AP kiddos who are creating something with the information we learn.


I hope to throw all of these in a flight am at the end of the year - I think it will look super cool. I also think this is something I can keep up with.  Daily quotes would be asking too much of me, but my students like it enough to pay attention and even ask for new quotes.  And the chalk is easy enough that I can write out my quote and I usually decorate it at a later time.

My favorite quote I forgot to take a picture of ... "Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate."


  1. I absolutely LOVE this idea!!!! Did you paint something with chalkboard paint, or did you find a chalkboard and put a picture frame around it? Thinking this needs to go in my "to make" for the beginning of school!!! :D

    1. Teacher Mom - My husband found this huge frame, I painted it and I cut a piece of plywood to fit. It was plywood that was in the garage, and was not as smooth as I would have liked, but it worked!!! I bought three small tubes of chalkboard paint at Michsel's for next to nothing -- a much better/cheaper solution than Home Depot.

      The hardest part was attaching the plywood the the frame. I nailed it from the backside -and the nails wen through the front of the frame ... my solution was to bend the nails back ... not polished, but effective.
