I put these posters up at each center to remind my students of the procedures.
In my classroom I have individual cassette players at my listening center. I got them from Donors Choose years ago and they are so cute! However, they are starting to eat my tapes and, for some reason, SOME of my kids this year don't get how to work them! I made these little "tags" to tape to the trays I store them in as reminders of what NOT to do.
I also included some little visual icons to attatch to the monitors. I like the kids to close out of whatever program they are using and turn the monitor off when they are finished. Visual cues are a must for my group. I could not, for the life of me, get a good picture of them. I hope you get the idea.
Last but not least, there is a poster with all the icons found on my desktop that my students are allowed to click. Like I said, visuals are a must with my group. I didn't know how to make this user friendly for all. I mean, not everyone uses the same programs. So, I included mine and a BLANK copy. My original thought was, if you planned to buy the packet, you could simply print out the icons you use and glue them to the desktop poster. But, then I got thinking. Some people buy things on TpT because they don't know HOW to do things like that on their computers. Soooooooo....I'm going to give this new idea a try.
Custom Computer Desktop Poster
Here's how to get yours:
#1 Become a follower of my blog. :)
#2 Purchase my Managing Technology packet from TpT
#3 Email me the sites that you would like on your poster. Please be as specific as possible. I will use the image that comes up when I google the site unless you specify a particular icon.
#4 Be patient with me. Give me at least a week long turn around.
I'm going to do this on a trial basis. If it becomes too much and takes away from my mothering duties I'll have to stop. BUT- I've only got 14 followers, I'm no Deanna Jump in the TpT world, and I REALLY enjoy making things for other people, so I think it'll work out!
The email address is:
Here is a copy of the poster I use, as a freebie!
I leave you tonight with two things that made me happy this week.
We made these crazy pumpkins today. I borrowed the idea from a pin I found on pinterest, duh! They make me laugh every time I see them!
(2 of my kids do not celebrate Halloween- hence the pumpkins without faces and the sign that says "pumpkins" not Jack-o-lanterns.)
I took my "Bubba" to a local apple farm and a friend took this picture of us running. It makes my heart melt every time. He'll be 22 months next week and I just can't believe it. What a joy he is!
Thanks for reading!
