Classroom Posters Made Easy

Classroom Posters Made Easy

Here's a tip to help you set up A4 sized posters easily. After printing my posters, I skip laminating and just insert them into vinyl report covers (with the clips). This way, the posters can be seen clearly and are protected by the glossy transparent cover. The best part about it is that you can change the posters easily by just taking out the page and putting in a new one. While the vinyl covers will remain on the wall all year, the posters inside can be changed as often as needed. 

Setting up your Classroom posters...   Magnetic dots for Classroom use

I applied some heavy duty mounting tape at the back of each, and placed a pair of adhesive-backed magnetic dots on the inside of the top corners to keep the vinyl covers closed. You can always use Velcro dots instead of the magnetic dots if you prefer because the Velcro dots are stronger. I chose the magnetic ones because they always give a sleeker finish.
Free Classroom Poster for Vocabulary and Grammar
Currently, I am using them for my grammar and vocabulary display areas. I got those amazing (and free) posters from Corinna at Surfing Through Second. Feel free to grab your copy there! Here are links to free downloads of other things you may need to have on display: monthly calendarsclass rules, motivational posters, math posters, reading posters, etc. I am really pleased with how this idea turned out so I'd love for you to give it a try sometime!

Hi Ms. Rolle, it's very nice to 'meet' you too. I am so curious about the Bahamas. It's on my bucket list! Thank you for saying hi, I always feel extra happy to be chatting with other teachers in the region.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
