Unless stated otherwise, the following posters were designed by Ginny Lindzey for distribution to other teachers needing posters and such for their classrooms. For best results print on glossy photo paper (you will LOVE the results). You can also print to 11"X17" paper by choosing "expand small pages to paper size" (or similar) in your printer dialog box.

 

Please remember that Ginny designed many of these posters and we are posting some created by other individuals. We do this to share and support each other. Please do not resell these for profit. Many use photos that prohibit commercial use.
