Posters for Your Classroom: little whispers(tm) "Hopes and Dreams"

Posters for Your Classroom: little whispers(tm) "Hopes and Dreams"

little whispers™ is a new concept from Silvestris Educational Publications—5” x 7” mini “desktop posters” that you print yourself. They can be framed, attached to a backing, used as bookmarks, or slipped under binder covers. Some teachers have creatively used them as covers for small books. Since you print them yourself, you can make as many copies as you need, on whatever type of stock your printer can handle. They look particularly attractive when printed on card stock and framed. All little whispers™ desktop posters are themed in concept, content, and design. They are meant for us teachers rather than our students. They convey messages that are both primary and elementary to all good teaching. Thus, they are set in a font that recalls the simple printing seen on any elementary chalk or whiteboard. The posters in the “hopes and dreams” series have no capital letters or end punctuation, to remind us that so much has happened before this moment in our students’ lives, and so much more is yet to come. They speak of those things that are important to us as teachers, yet tend to be the very things we forget in the daily “business” of the classroom. We all know the importance of hope, understanding, praise, encouragement, and dreams. But it is often difficult to go about the daily business of the classroom while keeping these concepts in the forefront of our thinking. That tiny gap is where little whispers™ mini posters enter the picture. They are designed to remind us of the most important things in our teaching—the things that can’t be tested or quantified, but which pervade every aspect of every interaction between us and our students. These are not things that we put in our plan books. Yet, does any one of us have the right to plan even one lesson if we lose sight of them? little whispers™ mini posters are designed to give us gentle, quiet reminders throughout the day. They will amplify our own voices in calling us back to our origins as teachers. Print them out and place them: • in frames on your desk • between pages of your books • in the closet where you keep your coat • under transparent binder covers • in your plan book and roll book • next to your computer monitor • in your file drawers • anywhere you can see them as you go through your day
