      You can draw your students attention to the content on the poster as it applies to the class. For example, if you are teaching PEMDAS (order of operations), kids will benefit from looking at the poster to remind themselves of the steps to take. Sometimes posters have miniature versions on the backside for teachers to copy. I sometimes will do this, shrinking it to notebook size and have the kids glue it into their spiral notebooks to keep at hand when doing the practice problems at home or during study time.

        Remember that we do not all learn the same way (Gardner, remember?) As a visual learner myself I always have to SEE what the person is talking about. You can present orally but also present it visually. Tactile approaches are good too. I can't see a negative to teaching many different ways to different kinds of thinking. It should benefit all children, not just a few. Not to mention they don't listen real well either! (Now there's a lesson to be had! "How to Listen") Good luck this year!
