Over the years I have designed several posters for use in my wife's media center. Here are the customizable templates for some of our favorites, and a couple of .jpg images that you can use to promote reading. All are 11 X 17 posters, so you can get them printed at any office supply store, in color, for under $2 each. They are great as rewards, promotions using staff, faculty, local celebrities and top readers. Enjoy!
Million Word Recognition
For this one, replace the name of the school, the student's name, and the photo. In MS Word 2007 and 2010, you can shape the photo to fit the oval. Get the principal and the teacher or media specialist to sign the bill and you're done. The small bill and the bookshelf can be made into a two sided laminated bookmark as a keepsake.
Media Center Promotion
Download and save these images and then load them into an 8.5 X 11 or 11 X 17 Word doc. They can be stretched to fit.
Quiet in the Library Please
This poster revolutionized the media center. Change a few words and see if it does the same for yours!
For these posters, replace the photo (right click on it and send it to the background or go to "Text Wrapping" and click on "Behind text." Change the text to fit your needs and have fun with the fonts.
Read Like an All Star!
In 2009-10, her emphasis was "Read Like an All Star." We developed these posters to promote that theme. For this one, replace the photo. In MS Word 2007 and 2010, you can shape the photo to fit the oval, circle, or pentagon. It's a little tricky to get it just right, but it is worth the effort. One suggestion - right click on the photo that is in there now and write down the size (height and width) to help you match your photos to the ones I have included.
Reading Takes You Places
In 2010-2012, the theme was Reading Takes You Places. These posters were fun because we got to promote the them and specific books or series. Change the photos like in the ones above and the captions in the thought or speaking bubble can say, "I went to Hollywood with Percy Jackson!" or "I traveled to ancient Egypt with Jack and Annie!"
