Activity Overview

To support their work on positive self-talk and motivational strategies, students can create quote posters of inspirational quotes. These can be from famous people, family, or of their own invention, and should help motivate them and their classmates to succeed both academically and socially throughout the year! These quotes can be based around an important theme or be personal to the students themselves. Students will love creating their designs and seeing them showcased around the room or the school!
