Via Just Story It
You’ve probably seen these types of posters everywhere. Now Quotes Cover provides a tool that lets you create your own. You can create posters, Facebook timelines, Google Plus, E-Cards, Wallpapers, and more. A variety of sizes are available.
Use quotes from the site or add your own. Then with just a few clicks you and/or your students can customize the typography, color, and add your own background if desired. Lots of choices.
No registration required.
Students can create posters that are easily downloaded using their favorite quotes from songs, movies, people or create their own inspirational quote.
I like that you can also add your own background if you choose. Students’ drawings would be perfect for this. Or how about a class picture in the background with a quote representing your class. Possibilities are endless.
I fooled around with this tool this afternoon and it is very (fun) easy to use. :)

This is writing prompt #703… but it’s been reworked based on some excellent feedback… feedback about simplifying the wording of things, which I’ll try to incorporate more often. If anyone else has specific prompts that they think need to be reworded or simplified, please let me know. I really appreciate the feedback. Sometimes I forget what Milton Glaser said: “Just enough is more.”
TeachHUB Magazine from teachhub.com -
TeachHUB is a website provided by the K-12 Teachers Alliance offering “K-12 News, Lessons & Shared Resources By Teachers, For Teachers”. There is an excellent section where a number of excellent educators contribute to blogs, and there are a number of free lesson plans available covering a range of topics.
TeachHub also now publish TeachHUB Magazine for the iPad. As an iPad user I’m always on the lookout for quality magazines and books about education on Newsstand and iBooks. And I’m happy to say that the first two editions of TeachHUB Magazine are of high quality both in terms of content and design. The first issue (March 2013) offered articles on bullying, quick tips to renew and re-evaluate space in your classroom, and reviews of six apps for organisation. The latest issue (April 2013) further discussed bullying, offered tips for using Google effectively, and reviewed five great art apps. Reader Q&As, book and movie reviews, and “Real Teacher Stories” are regular sections. I like the mix of topics and laid back style of presentation and writing. And best of all, it’s free! So, if you own an iPad, follow the link below to download the magazine and subscribe for free.
