Using positive quotes for student motivation using growth mindset has always been a must in my classroom. We as teachers know a positive quote for a student, a high five, a fun note, or good phone call home can go a long way for a child in our classroom. As a teacher I am always looking for ways to try to boost a student’s self esteem. I have created lots of resources over the years to give out during different seasons that I hope you will love. Below is a list of some of my favorite resources that I have found that work great with my upper elementary kiddos. These resources can be used for middle school kids too for the same results!
I use these bright colored posters to display in the classroom throughout the school year. They have lots of messages about trying your best and getting back up when you fall down. You can buy inexpensive IKEA frames to display them on a wall in the classroom. Easily switch them out throughout the school year. These posters look great on bulletin boards, classroom walls, and hallways.
These pencil toppers a so fun to use because of the funny sayings that us vegetable puns. These are great to hand out during the school year. Also use around major test times to keep your students feeling motivated.

The springtime is usually when most schools begin their statewide testing. During this time test anxiety is on the rise for many kids in all subjects and grades. Every year that I have taught, I always have had multiple students who have shown to have some form of test anxiety. I like to use these coloring pages as a way for students to relax some while reading the message on each of the pages. The coloring pages can be kept with the student to look at when they need to feel calm about an upcoming test.
