"How to Make a Poster" Poster

I made this poster a few year ago from book I got from my mother-in-law (who found it at a garage sale). Here is a link to the book on AMAZON and better yet (!) a link to the FREE PDF of the book.

UPDATE - Apparently the PDF site is down. Luckily I downloaded it before it went down and I have it uploaded HERE.

I copied some of the templates from the book and made a "How to Make a Poster" poster (the kids think that is the funniest thing!).

I left it up on the wall and earlier finishers were directed to the poster to pick a layout to make a poster for the classroom on whatever topic we were covering at the time. This could also be used as a guide for a right hand poster assignment.

It currently resides in a friends classroom and she is using it in a similar fashion.

I'm a 5th grade teacher and I'm a big fan of your blog. It's really inspired me to start using interactive notebooks in my classroom. And I really like your "How to Make a Poster" poster idea. I was trying to get a copy of the book, but it's no longer being sold on and the link to the pdf of the book doesn't work. Have you, by any chance, saved the pdf version? If so, would you mind emailing it to me? I'd really appreciate it.

This is amazing! Sometimes I have students that have difficulty getting started with poster designs. I will definitely be using this resource. :-)
