One of the coolest features of Storyboard That is the ability to create your own printable posters. With two poster-sized layouts, the sky's the limit. All of the customizable scenes, dynamic characters, textables, and more can be used to create incredible, eye-catching images that will make your classroom or your student projects stand out. It's so easy to make your own custom posters to fit with the way you want your classroom to look and how your students learn best.
While much of the walls are often spoken for by boards, technology, furniture, and so on, those extra touches you make are not just "decoration". The wall space of a classroom is secret prime real estate for extra teaching and topic reinforcement.

Outside of our plethora of poster templates, here's some fun things to do with your class.
At the beginning of the year, have your class make its own class portrait! The finished project can be printed out on oversized paper and hung on the wall or on the door. You can either choose the characters for each student or let them take turns at the computer to choose their own character over the course of a day or a week.
For a fun spin on the project, each student could pick from any of the characters available (including monsters, animals, myths, etc.) and the whole class can guess which character each student picked (just make sure to keep track while they're choosing!). Another idea would be to have kids choose a future profession and show themselves with adult characters and items pertaining to that profession.
Instead of a class portrait, the class could make a collage of items, characters, and scenes. The poster will showcase what each student loves or finds important. Again, you can have the rest of the class try to guess which student picked which item for a fun class activity!
Creating custom posters is a great way to ensure that important information is fun to see and fits into your classroom. If you're looking for more ideas on posters you can create with Storyboard That, we have templates to get you started!
