Find it in the iTunes store here
I'm not sure why I had never loaded it to my phone before. It has provided a great deal of entertainment.
My sweet student wore this on Dress Your Way Day. I agree.
Tried it Awesomeness #2: Halloween Question Cards
First, I had my students use the cards with their 3rd grade buddies as discussion cards. I loved hearin' the responses they were givin' to one another.
Then, we decided to use the cards in our room for a little writin' assignment. Each child chose a card and wrote an answer to his/her question.
Would you rather be stuck in a Haunted House with ghosts or zombies?
What do you think your teacher will dress up as for Halloween?
Which monster would you prefer to be for a day? Mummy, zombie, werewolf, ghost, vampire, etc.
If you could only get one candy while trick-or-treating, which kind would you get?
Tried it Awesomeness #3: Skeleton Names
Last week I read Christy's blog, Teaching Tales Along the Yellow Brick Road and came across her skeleton craftiness post. She is an ARTIST because mine didn't turn out anything like hers. Kudos to Christy!
The students really enjoyed the skeleton name craft. We have a few that "forgot" how to write cursive over the summer, but I was super sweet and helped them write their names.
Tried it Awesomeness #4: Rock Star Lush soap
My sweet roomie brought this back to me from her trip to Boston over Fall Break. She knows me so well!
Be sure to check out the other Tried it Tuesdays on Holly's blog. I promise once I get finished writin' this Professional Development Plan, I WILL read the rest of your blogs!
