Kate, from Kate's Science Classroom has joined with Krystal from Lessons from the Middle to give away two $20 shopping sprees to each of their stores. This is the perfect opportunity for those of us who teach kids in the upper grades!
Teacher to the Core for her lesson in how to create beautiful covers for things you sell on TpT. Her lesson, including video, simplified making covers for me. It used to take me so long to create a cover, because I did it all using Paint. Her way? Make it in Powerpoint. Oh. My. Word. So much easier!
Here's one that I've started playing with. It's not finished yet, but it only took me a couple of minutes to create. I made this Adjective review for my students to use about a month ago, and I've been so busy with other things that I haven't had time to make the cover page and tighten it up a bit. I've started working on an Adverb review; hopefully that one will come a little more quickly.
Are your students totally into making loom bracelets? I commented on one a student of mine was wearing, and about an hour later, I found it on my desk. Totally unexpected! And very sweet! This coming Wednesday before Thanksgiving, students will bring in looms to share their skills with each other. I bought a bunch of bands, and they're going to teach each other how to make different designs. What a great way to share!
Have a great weekend! Next week's a short one - have a great Thanksgiving!
