High School Classroom Decorations

My new classroom: 
I continued to use my past Twitter theme. I also added a Facebook bulletin board that highlights the theme and essential questions each grade level will focus on this year in our literature. I added pictures of the authors and books we will read at the beginning of the year in the status update section. I will continue to add authors as the year progresses. 

All of the Twitter posts run around the top of the classroom. I used to create the quote images. The kids love the styles. 

The bulletin board at the front of the room has an Instagram theme. I will post pictures of the students and allow them to bring in pictures to post on the board. 

I filled in empty spaces with posters I made on bulletin board paper. I found most of the poster quotes from Pinterest. 

Here is a list of the quotes I used for the Twitter theme...
“I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”

“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”

“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”

“Nothing will work unless you do.”

“Don’t worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition.”

“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”
“Even in darkness, it is possible to create light.”

“It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
 @Oscar Wilde

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
“The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.”

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” 

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” 

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” 
Mark Twain

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.” 

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” 

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” 

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.” 
@Henry Ford

“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
