Teacher's Day Poster Ideas
What better way to show how much you like your teachers than to make something for them instead of buying a bauble or a greeting card at the store? A teacher would surely like something designed by you to put up in your classroom or the staffroom. Posters are fun and easy to make and you could use glitter, ribbons, make pop-ups or even a collage! You could also get a few friends to help you in making a poster with you! Your poster should be attention-grabbing and vivid while at the same time giving information about the topic. If you are making your poster at school, make sure you carry things like scissors, glue, stickers or anything else that you need. And no matter what the poster, you cannot go wrong! It's all about having enjoying your activity and making something unique. This is more of a token of appreciation that you could gift your teachers. Read on for some fun ideas!
Choosing Your Topic
- Writing down your ideas is the simplest way to get you started off on your poster.
- Make a mind map and web out everything that comes to your mind. Put the main idea right in the middle of your page and start expanding on them as more ideas pop up.
- Don’t look at it only from one perspective. Look at your idea/topic from different perspectives. Having a different outlook will help you to think out of the box and give rise to new facets of your idea, which most likely is far from monotonous.
- Use the 5W’s and 1H method — who, what where, when, why and how. This will help you shed some light on which direction you might take before starting your poster.
- Try getting more information about your idea by asking people who have some knowledge about the particular subject for their point of view. Also be sure to get facts right by looking it up on the internet or using journals/encyclopedias/books.
There are so many different colors that you can choose from when it comes to posters, but here are some very simple things to keep in mind when you choose the right color:
- Use either a light color on a dark one or vice versa. This will make your poster more visible.
- It is better to use a muted color over a very bold sheet for your background as other colors will stand out better if you use a monotonous color.
- Don’t mix too many colors! Remember that colors of the same family look better together. (For e.g.: light blue, dark blue, light green etc.)
Looking at your poster board can be very daunting especially when you don't know how you are going to fill up all that space. No matter what you use, it will augment the quality of your poster. Do remember however, that a background is still a background, which means that it doesn't have to be anything elaborate. To create a funky background, use things like old newspaper cutouts, photocopies of the subject you are working on, gift wrap, aluminum foil or the classic brown paper.
Jazz It Up
To make your poster stand out, you don't need anything radical. Here are some of the things that you could use to give your poster that extra boost:
- Fabric and Fabric Paint
- Cutouts of magazines, comic books or old newspapers
- Pressed flowers
Take time to organize your thoughts and get all your materials ready before starting work on your poster project. The presentation is just as important as the content. Throw in a poem for your teacher or some photographs of your class trip or even your photos of your classroom! Have fun with whatever you are doing and let your imagination run wild. enjoy your craft work and surprise your teachers on Teacher's Day.
