Just finished up my classroom today! Meetings start tomorrow, students will start on the 22nd!
I love it! I got the same border and little peace signs. Where did you get the larger boarder and the poster?
Thanks! I got the black border and poster from Teacher Created Resources.
Love the peace signs and I'm sure the 7/8 girls will too!
I love your room! But, I can't read your writers' quotes. I'd love to know what they are - I do the same board every year!

Thanks all! Harper, I'll post my quotes on here this afternoon. Right now I've got to go get ready for NEW TEACHER ORIENTATION! I know it's just a meeting, but I'm so excited!!
Have fun! The first year is so exciting!
Here are the quotes I used on my board:
”I think I did pretty well, considering I started out with nothing but a bunch of blank paper.” ~ Steve Martin
"If you write one story, it may be bad; if you write a hundred, you have the odds in your favor."
- Edgar Rice Burroughs
"Every writer I know has trouble writing." ~Joseph Heller
"Only in grammar can you be more than perfect." ~William Safire
"There are three rules for writing. Unfortunately, no one can agree what they are."
- Somerset Maugham
"The hardest battle is to be nobody but yourself in a world that is doing its best, night and day, to make you everyone else."
~ e.e. cummings
If anyone else has any other good quotes on writing; please share. Thanks

I think it was Ray Bradbury who said, "You only fail if you stop writing." I love that one!
And Mark Twain, "Use the right word, not its second cousin."

Very pretty room! Congrats! Have a great year!
Love the writing quotes, too!
I use, "Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers."
Thanks for the quotes, I may have to add these to the board. Mid-semester I'm thinking about having the students create their own quotes about writing and placing them on the board. We'll see if I get this done; I have a feeling it is going to be a busy year!
