Each month in my classroom we have a quote that is on display. I chose a range of quotes where the message can be related in a classroom setting, either in terms of learning, socialising with others, striving for success, attitude, etc.
We also discuss who said the quote so some background knowledge can be developed, as students learn a little about some of history’s most prominent characters.
I refer to the quote throughout the month, where relevant. You can also use the Quote of the Month for extension tasks. Students can;
– research more about the person to which the quote is attributed
– find other quotes that are similar or are by the same person
– make their own display, bookmark, artwork etc for the quote.
With the quote I sometimes use it as a sentence of the day study, analysing punctuation, grammar and vocabulary, or even get the students to write and illustrate the quote in their handwriting or publishing book.
Here are some samples of the quotes I have used.
