One of the ideas I found involved one of my greatest *heart flutters* I collect quotes. I have them written down everywhere: in a notebook in my purse, in my phone, my random notebook, my quote notebook, random scraps of paper, on my computer, a Pintrest quote board etc. So when I was roaming around Pintrest (probably when I should have been sleeping,) I came across a Reading Graffiti Wall, and fell in love! Then not only did I fall in love with the idea, but the entire blog! She had me sold at the giant Superman! AND she had some pretty cool links to visit also!
I often share quotes with my students and have even had some give me quotes. I tend to treasure these quotes the most. One of my students last year gave me this quote:
This may also be a good way to show examples of figurative language and voice in writing.
So many good ideas out there!
P.S. While in college we watched a video of Harry Wong, who is a classroom management god, and the biggest thing I remember is he said to "steal, steal, steal" ideas from other teachers. Good thing I was given that permission, because there are some way more creative people out there with ideas better than mine! Thank you Jordon for allowing me to "steal" your idea!
