How to Use Quotes to Empower Students in Your Classroom

How to use inspirational quotes in classroom to empower students in grades 4 5 6
Whether it’s inspirational or funny, so many people love quotes. Bring quotes in the classroom using these ideas to empower students and build confidence in our young learners.  
I came across the book 365 days of Wonder: Mr. Brown’s Precepts. Having read the novel, Wonder, I had to have this book. A precept is a rule or thought that will guide someone’s behavior.

How to Use Quotes in the Classroom

This book has 365 precepts, one for each day of the year. Each day write a precept on the board and talk about it as a class. 

 Another way to use quotes in the classroom: 

Add a quote to your desk and have it reflect how upper elementary students feel about themselves. One example is:

 “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken,” 

Oscar Wilde
Students loved the quote and turn it into a lesson by talking about how and why it is important to be yourself and not try to fit into a mold that someone else wants you to be.

To further this philosophy, I am giving away my desk letters for FREE! When printing out, I chose to print them four to a page. I also included a box around each letter which made cutting so much easier. To do this, click the option that says, “print a page border”.
