O.K. it took me a while to figure out (perhaps I should have read tutorials or watched some videos), but once I mastered the whole pinterest and how to pin items to boards boards, I am in LOVE!

There are Many great tutorials and videos out there to teach you how to use pinterest. Google pinterest tutorials or instructions and you will get loads of help.

Basically you request an invitation to pinterest and then you create your account, load the pin it to your bookmarks menu and start pinning. You can create boards for topic you want to accumulate ideas for. The best part is the pins show the picture of the idea you want to keep track of AND the weblink/address where the pin is from is on the board as well! So you can always go back to the idea.

You can also browse other boards people have created and repin the ideas they have found for your own boards.

This is soooo very much better than just bookmarking a site and then forgetting where you marked it!

Here is a link to some of the boards I have created so far!

If you want an invite to pinterest just leave me a comment and I will invite you!

Make your own pOP for sight words game!

I found this game

at learning resources.
It is a POP for sight words game. I figured it would be super simple to make this game, and it is :)
At the Dollar Tree I found Plastic Popcorn boxes 2 for $1. To make the game, I simply googled Popcorn images and printed them onto cardstock. For durability I laminated them. On few popcorn kernels I wrote the word POP. I plan to label my popcorn pieces with the alphabet or numbers. Learning resources labeled each popcorn piece with a sight word.
The game is set up for 2-4 players. Each player takes a turn selecting a piece of popcorn out of the bucket. The player then has to correctly identify the letter, number, word, etc on their popcorn piece. If they can correctly identify the letter,number or word on their popcorn piece they get to keep it. If they do not correctly identify the letter, number or word they have to put their popcorn piece back in the bucket. If a student selects a POP kernel they must place ALL the kernels they have accumulated back into the bucket. The game ends when all kernels are out of the bucket. The person with the most kernels wins!
