I’m a big fan of good memes or quotations, and love to share and discuss them.
If a quotation is educationally meaningful, I often will share it with my students. They are perfect for inspiring meaningful discussions and higher level thinking! Sometimes we use these quotations or sayings as a springboard for journal writing.
While collecting quotations for students, I thought: Why not add them to my writing center choices?
Because I teach primary students, I created templates to support student writing by adding lines below the poster and a starter sentence. After we talk about the quotation and make personal connections to the idea, students can color their own version of the poster, and then write about their ideas. We call it “Quotation Station“!
Here are some other ways we use these quotation posters:
- print color posters to hang in the classroom near the writing center
- collect posters to hang in the “quotation corner”
- reduce the size so students can glue the into their journals
- send them home for students to discuss with families and write together
- add to our sub tub for an easy writing task
- use with a big buddy class to create their own posters
