I was gifted a bunch of newspaper pads, so instead of letting them collect dust, they are collecting school materials. On the Left we are creating a giant geography book to go along with TOG. I simply used fotosearch.com to find pictures, then ala Quizlet,+ MSWord printed out the terms in a jumbo font. Viola! Giant Geography is born. I will use the cardboard backs of two tablets to make a book cover.
This easel was gifted to me. What a perfect spot for the tablet I'm using strictly for art.Each lesson will have some copy work, which I will have done in advance (on the tablet). Then I can use the easel for presentation. It's lightweight and super easy to move around the schoolhouse. What a great "old time" edition to my tool box.
I also have a few old corkboards; the small size that might be a little bulletin board. I don't generally use them, so what I did was pin a few things I repeatedly use to the corkboards. THEN, I can place maps and other visual materials on top of the easel. This also allows for fast moving of flimsy tools. The map you see on the right is the same one I used with Rockin' Out Guitar Dude waaaay back when he was in K. Now, he's in 10th. I also used that map to teach a co-op class. Any old Brain Day friends read my blog?
|These are those gifted curtains I mentioned last week. Look below (and turn your head counterclockwise) to see what they are hiding.|
|I can't see the ladder, bookshelves of camping and hurricane supplies, back up school materials, and mailing materials. Out of sight, out of mind!|
Be on the lookout for a serious Tapestry of Grace Organizational Project. It may take me all year, but I'm getting the below shelves, materials, and additions all pretty. They Will Be in order and Color Coded. Even if it takes me all year to get it done!
|TOG Years 1-4, Anyone. Lots of books. Lots of paper. Soon to be: little chaos!|
