In other words, use these words instead
I'm posting a few pictures of our two classrooms at the Jr. High where I work. Old keyboard and time card holder turned into a word wall file... The kids can go grab a card with a common word on it and replace it with a more descriptive word, think mini thesaurus. Also would be good for vocabulary words with definitions, job charts, etc. When I bought them for a dollar at Goodwill, someone in line wanted to know what I was going to do with them. I told her I wasn't sure, but they were just too cool. This classroom is Texas and Americana style. We've used antiques, re-purposed junk, and kids pictures to decorate...to me it teaches a real life way to save money, recycle and make things pretty, plus personal.
There are about 4 of each card, in case more students want help with the same word...
I used old keyboard letters with magnets on the back to label the Word Wall... I love that it is magnetic!!
I sold the other time card holder at the booth, I had. It was displayed with invitations, pictures, cards, magnets... I decided I would rather keep it, but when I went back to get it, already sold :(
This keyboard idea could be used in so many ways. I want to make the keyboarding teacher, who is also a coach one with the school colors. An upwards game works well for signs, too... just endless possibilities. I know that is beginning to be a theme of each post, but it is true just let your imagination soar... I want the kids at school to see the possibilities!
I'm joining the party!
This tickled me pink when the idea came to me, daydreaming during a meeting and tickles me pink when I see the kids use it.
