Kid Made Reference Posters

I'm sharing at a mini language arts conference next week with a friend and some of the visuals I am bringing with me are my kid made reference posters. I have very few commercially made posters and such in my room. I have my students make them, use them and then we post them for reference. So here is a simple literacy station on nouns. My kids made the picture cards during whole group lesson time, then we placed them at the literacy station for them to sort and match along with books on nouns. After that, they can make additional sorting cards. When everyone has had a chance to use that station , the cards get glued and the poster hung. I then call it their learner's responsibility to refer to it if questions come up. No fuss, no muss on my part and they feel ownership of what we place on our class walls!


  1. Love these! Good luck at the conference!

  2. Thanks so much! Hope you get to try this out with your own set of students.

  3. I adore your blog! You have such wonderful ideas!! Thanks for sharing!

  4. what a cute idea. I have the kids write ideas on the interwrite board when we first go over these ideas, but I never thought about then having them create a poster to hang up afterward. THe best part is the literacy station portion too. I will try it this year.
