Posters Classroom Activity Sheet

Argus Posters

Poster Puzzles
Select a poster that has an important message for your class. Cut the poster into puzzle pieces that equal the number of students in your class. Give each student a piece and have the class put the puzzle together.

Poster Kiosk
Choose three posters that have a common theme or message. Tape them together to form a triangle. Display your “kiosk” on a counter or hang it from the ceiling!

Signposts Use a Metallic Silver Bolder Borders® panel (T-85201) to create the post for any of the road sign posters. Simply fold the border into thirds lengthwise and tape the poster to the top.

Hanging Posters
Mount two posters back-to-back with double-stick tape, then hang the posters from the ceiling.

WORKSHEET & Sample PDF Activity

Sample PDF Activity

Bulletin Board Header
Display the poster in the center of a bulletin board as a header. Have your students write about the message on the poster and display their writing around the poster.

Speech Balloons
Use the Speech Balloons Classic Accents® Variety Pack (T-10928) with any posters that have people or animals in them. Have fun coming up with creative sayings of your very own.

Terrific Trimmers®, Bolder Borders®, and Ready Letters®

Snowflake Blizzard
Use Snow and Ice Terrific Trimmers® (T-92164) to make a blizzard of decorative snowflakes. Simply cut them into thirds, staple together, and decorate with Classic Accents® such as Smiling Snowmen (T-10911), Shimmering Snowflakes (T-10008), or Flower Power (T-10923). Hang from ceiling or attach to a winter bulletin board.

Jungle Baskets
For a clever art project, weave jungle baskets with Zebra (T-92162) and Leopard (T-92163) Terrific Trimmers®. Create all sorts of sizes and shapes. Weave alternating or like patterns to create interesting themes for classroom or home use.

Letter Parade
Mount Ready Letters® on craft sticks and have an alphabet parade. Or, try reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault and act out the story with your newly created letter “puppets.”

Teach letter recognition and problem solving by mounting Ready Letters® on tagboard pieces and cutting to create individual letter puzzles. This is a perfect activity for individual or group review. It’s great for stations, too!

Zany Zoo
Construct an entire zoo full of silly animals using animal print Terrific Trimmers® (T-92162 and T-92163) and Ready Letters® (T-79246, T-79247, and T-79248). All sorts of strange and exotic creatures can take shape when you use a little glue, tape, pipe cleaners, and your imagination.

Learning About Letters
Use Ready Letters® and a simple Venn diagram to reinforce letter formation for younger students. Students will enjoy taking turns placing letters with only curved lines on one side, and letters with only straight lines on the other. The middle will showcase those with both.

Jungle Dominoes
Use letter pairs from Animal Prints Ready Letters® (T-79248) and mount on either side of a paper strip (TREND Bolder Borders® work perfectly for this). Students can play dominoes by matching letter to letter or pattern to pattern, reinforcing letter recognition and visual discrimination.
