A little personality and humour goes a long way

Hi Calli! You have an awesome blog! I LOVE these pics you posted. They are both inspirational and humorous. Seriously, who does not love a smiling lamb? I think I might need to “steal” some of these for my own use!
Best of luck in your studies. I’m sure we will be bumping into each other a few times during this journey.

Thanks Kelly! I’m sure we will.

I think these posters are fantastic. My two favourite ideas are the Before I Die I Want To… and the Blind Date with a Book.
The Before I Die I Want To board has the potential to really get students thinking about what is really important to them. Is it travel? Work? Having family? What is it? From there, students are able to set goals and figure out how they are going to achieve them.
The Blind Date with a Book is a great way for students to try a new style of book without having to spend a lot of time searching. Chances are the librarian will have selected books that are good and appropriate for your students.
Oh, and the lamb. Adorable.

I think the “Before I Die” wall would be awesome to have in a hallway or entrance to the school. It would be cool if it was huge and permanent, and the messages could remain over many years.

Loved the posters!! They clearly depict that humor and inspiration are 2 sides of the same coin and go hand by hand.
The “Now..Now…” board has really made me think. Now is the only time to think, decide and act. I think this can be really useful to make student realize the importance of time in our lives.
Thanks for sharing!

I love the ‘now’ clock too. Really, a person could do that to any clock with a little DIY magic. Pinterest here we come!

I love this! These posters are great as they range from funny, thought provoking, engouraging and motivating, but they will challenge students to think deeper about themselves and the world around them. I think this could be a great way to provoke student inquiry as well with, especially the picture with the sign to Jupiter. Something like that may encourage the student to learn more. As a book worm/nerd at heart I love the blind date with a book idea. It can be a way to push students out of their comfort zones and they may learn to enjoy new books and genres along the way!

Really, there could be signs for any planet, constellation, star, country, Hogwarts, The Shire (or BagEnd). Endless creative ideas are possible.
