Hi! I am Leilani and I have gotten the pleasure to work with Kelly and attend her S.H.A.R.E. (Staff Have Awesome Resources for Each Other) class. Kelly and Karen Stamp recently hosted a class at the beginning of the month. The theme of the class was to create a "fun" educational game using any type of lids. It was AMAZING!! It was wonderful to hang out with a bunch of creative teachers who are willing to go the extra miles to help their students learn in ways that they will enjoy over and over. Who would of thought that you could create so many educational games using a simple lid of any kind. We left our exchange with 18 new games made from lids....and many of them will be posted here in the next few weeks...so make sure you check back!
I love making teaching fun for educators and learning fun for students The game that I created was a George Washington and Abraham Lincoln lid game. This is what the game board looks like. I put one of five facts about each president in each star.
|This is what it looks like. (sorry it's sideways)|
The object of the game is to match the President with their fact. (example: "Father of our Country" George Washington) Ta-da..see how simple this is to make. The possibilities are endless!!
I also have a Teachers Pay Teachers store and have posted this game on it. Feel free to come and visit. Not only do I have this game but I have also made story retelling bracelets. My recent story retelling bracelet is Pete the Cat I love my White Shoes by James Dean and Eric Litwin. Here is a peek at my Pete the Cat Story bracelet.:
I wanted a cute and fun way for the kids to retell the stories we read in class so I created these. I also have done other stories. If are you interested please feel free to drop by my Teachers Pay Teachers storehttp://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Browse/Search:leilani+sayasithsena
Well, I hope you enjoyed my post. I'd like to thank Kelly for letting me be a guest on her blog.
Remember, teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning. Have a wonderful day!
