Sloth Classroom Posters

(0)
These posters will brighten up your room, and the posters and bookmarks will help children be calm and mindful. The bookmarks come in coloured or black and white. Children can colour the black and white version for some creativity! The posters come in four different options. I have provided so many choices for you! Choose from green with white polka dots frame, chalkboard background, chalkboard border, or burlap border. The polka dot frame is lovely! The chalkboard background is the best in my opinion, but it will use a lot of ink. If you can splurge on ink to decorate your classroom, go for the chalkboard background! If you want the chalkboard look without using so much ink, the chalkboard border is perfect! The burlap border is very lovely as well; it will work well if your classroom is decorated in a natural, rustic theme. The burlap border is also perfect if you are ink conscious; it will take less ink! Laminate pages. Cut out posters and bookmarks. Display posters in your classroom. I would suggest these mindfulness posters be displayed in a quiet corner/ quiet area. For the black and white bookmarks, allow children to colour the bookmarks before laminating and cutting them. Give the bookmarks to the children to use when reading. This resource comes with five posters in four different options for a total of twenty poster choices; this resource also comes with three coloured bookmarks and three black and white bookmarks.
