Reading Posters! A Free and Easy Maker Tool

I love to read. I love to see my students love to read. It's just the best! Encouraging their independent reading is one of my greatest joys as a teacher.

One way I promote reading is by inviting people from around the school to visit occasionally and talk for one or two minutes about their favorite book. Afterwards I take a picture of the guest with his or her book and turn it into a poster. It's so easy, using the Big Huge Labs motivational poster tool. You just upload the picture, choose a few details about the orientation and border of your final poster image, add your text, and boom! Stick the image on a blank word or powerpoint document, print, and you are ready to go! I like putting my posters up on my door and around my classroom.

This would also make a great project for students. You could have each student in your class create a poster after taking a picture of a friend or family member with a favorite book, then create a giant reading gallery.

I believe students are inspired to read by seeing people they care about with books they love. The bonus is they get great ideas for reading material too!
