I enjoyed using these tools and creating silly motivational messages. I would like to use these tools to make posters for my classroom with important information or motivational reminders. I can also see where using these tools could make assignment instructions more interesting for students. They are more likely to read a cartoon or silly saying than they are to read a long-winded handout. Using these tools would remind me to pare down the instructions to the essential elements students will remember. Reminders of when projects are due is another use for these creative message makers. As I plan for next year, my goal is to use more creative means of communicating, and I will use these resources to design more motivating memos.
