    I used this activity as a closer and a take home. Once the students finished with our regular activity, I gave them time to complete this, which they enjoyed. I also had the students read out their quote to the class which was a powerful moment since the quotes do not focus on getting higher grades, they focus on motivation. Since the teachers cannot have too much curriculum on their walls during testing, I had one grade level that asked for more of these and they covered their walls in these quotes and designs.
