Free Kindergrten Word Poster

In a flash giveaway on the EDUCLIPS FACEBOOK PAGE, I asked people to write down the first word that comes to mind when they hear the word, 'Kindergarten'. There were so many great words, I popped them into a poster, which you can pick up for free HERE.


For those teaching Kindergarten, they will know how rewarding but also how challenging it can be. The words on this poster were comments from many teachers. (I'm sorry I couldn't include them all!) It could be used to remind you about the positive things about teaching and also that you are not alone!

I used the fabulous fonts from KG fonts.

My daughter, who has just started Kindergarten decided she didn't want to 'do' Kindergarten any more. When I asked her why, she said that the teacher 'keeps asking us to do stuff'. My reply? Well, I had to laugh and quickly told her that she'd better get used to it...she's got at least another 12 years to go!

New Sets Posted: Preschool/PreK & Apple Friends



I really enjoyed bringing these boring old apples alive! These quirky little characters would be fun to use in a creative writing project or for September/Fall themed units. 


The nap image from this set is based on my daughter who has just finished preK and is moving onto K this year. She loves her naps and cannot be without her favorite teddy bear!

How To Create A Quick and Simple Special Occasion Poster As A Gift

It was my tenth wedding anniversary and I had been looking around for something meaningful to give to my husband to commemorate the ten years we have spent being married. After much pondering, I decided to create a poster using the words that would mean the most to him. It came out rather well and I got to thinking that this was such a simple process (if you know how to use Powerpoint or a similar program), that anyone could do it. You don't have to be an artist or a designer to create it. Plus it took only 30 minutes altogether!
Here's what you need to make a poster like this:


  • Use of a computer program such as Powerpoint
  • access to some clipart
  • printer
  • white photo paper or plain white paper
  • frame


First, I brainstormed all the words I could think of, which related to our journey over the last ten years: where we got married, where we took our honeymoon, kids' names etc. You get the general idea, right?

In Powerpoint, I went to FILE>PAGE SETUP and changed the view to 'portrait'. I then went to the TEXT box and put the text box into my page.

From there, I selected a font to use. I love KG font's 'ALL OF ME', which you can find in the KG store HERE. I played around with the size of the lettering so each line is different, making it a little more interesting. But you could go from small at the top to large at the bottom, large at the top to gradually smaller at the bottom or whatever you like. It's worth playing around with the letter sizes to see what works best for you.

I put a space and a star between each line of words. I also chose between 1 and 5/6 words to put on each line, where they related closely to each other.

To make sure they are evenly spaced and span the whole line, I used the 'DISTRIBUTE TEXT' tab shown below:






Adding one single colorful clip art accent gives the black and white a thrust of color so I added a little heart button from the Valentine Doodles Set at Educlips.com. (Where else, of course?!)

After I had printed it out, I placed it into a frame. This one is a white frame but of course, it would look great in black, or another color too:



And that's it! 

If you try this, and you want to put a link in the comments, I'd love to see what you created!
