Before you Speak: THINK

I saw this saying on Pinterest earlier today and 
knew I had to make it into a printable sign. 
Such wise advice....for kids and adults alike! 



Before You Speak Think

1. Download from Google Docs here. 

2.  Leave me a comment with your email address and I'll send it to you.

  5. I just saw this on Pinterest too. Do you use scrbd.com to turn it into a sign? I have a feeling I'm behind the times not knowing about it!!

  7. Thank you for sharing this! SOOOO cute! We just had a family night about thinking before we speak. This will be a perfect reminder to put on our family magnet board!

  8. Dear Anonymous......Scribd is just a document sharing site, not a site to actually create documents. Does that make sense? {I make my signs in Powerpoint and then save them as PDF's and upload them to Scribd}.

  9. i'm having a hard time downloading this one. for some reason the colored letters show up as blocks and it's offset. am i doing something wrong? i stumbled upon your blog today and i'm in love. thank you so much for sharing your talent.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Kara Jayne....I'm not sure why it's doing that. I just tried from my blog and from Scribd and both turned out fine. Since it's a PDF it should turn out exactly as I saved it so I'm not sure what the problem is. I'll email it to you right now and see if I can figure out why it's being difficult!

  20. I LOVE your printables! Thank you so much for sharing...I cannot wait to hang some of them up poster-sized in my classroom this fall! So glad I found your blog on Pinterest! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. OK, I went to school today to create the bulletin board with this poster as my inspiration . . . . I used a paw print border and it says: 'PAWS' before you speak . . . then THINK goes down just like it does on your poster as an acrostic and the questions are off to the side in a cool PEACE font. YAY! Oh, and I also posted it to my counselor's page at school with a link back to your sweet blog!!!

    Thanks again! Barbara

  85. Mac Users: If you copy the small box version of the sign up above and drag it to your desktop it will print. Put your curser on the outside edge of the box and drag as if you were highlighting some words to copy them. When the image is all blue, drag it to your desktop. Then double click on that jpg image and it will open up in a little new window. Last, click file and print, and you will have it!
    Trial and error, finally worked right b4 I was going to email to ask for a copy. It looks to be a little less "crisp" of an image, but looks good.
    Thank you for posting!

  96. Thanks for the download. I had this as a poster hanging at home when the kids were little but then it got lost during a move. Recently, gossip at work has increased and that reminded me of THINK. I will now print it out and display in various locations at work. Gossip can be so tempting and so hurtful at the same time.
