Creating Posters & Mini Pocket Charts

I love creating posters for my classroom. I use them to decorate the classroom, share poems and chants with the students in a LARGE version, and now I use posters in some of my Centers to help scaffold learning for some of my Kiddos! Once upon a time I created them all in PrintMaster, but as the versions changed, it seemed to drop the option to make POSTERS. I recently discovered I can make both POSTERS and MINI POCKET CHART images for classroom centers. This week I used the poster to help with a label the pumpkin sheet from my LABEL THE PARTS packet. I am also using mini versions of the theme related words in my BIG pocket chart at my word work center. Watch this video to learn how you can turn any PDF image into a poster or mini pocket chart images....
Please let me know if you found this video helpful, or if you have any questions about how I made the posters/mini pocket chart images.
You can visit my Teachers Notebook shop and get my LABEL THE PARTS packet for FREE!
I hope you have lots of fun making posters and mini pocket charts for your students to enjoy!
