A Great Teacher Is A Great Modifier

When I was in undergraduate I had a (lovely!) professor who always said, "A great teacher is a great modifier" as she showed us all of the neat, recycled, creative ideas she had come across.  So I couldn't help but think of her today when I realized that although I wanted to play a review game as part of my activities for the day, I didn't have pieces to my Candy Land game.  Somewhere along the lines I lost one of the gingerbread people, and I could have up to 5 kids at the game at one time.  Sooooo I dug through my math manipulatives box (even though I don't even teach math!) and came up with this:

Marker caps!  The markers had been trashed but I saved the caps and this put them to the most perfect use!  Different colors, plastic & washable, can stand independently...

woo-hoo for recycled! :)

Have a great night!

That's a great idea! I'm going to start saving marker caps. What area of upstate NY are you in? I'm also in upstate NY.

But if you find yourself going off on long tangents about personal matters, it's time to get back on track. The whole professional vs. personal ratio also has to be calculated with your topic and target audience in mind. Anything that wouldn't be appropriate to say to a client in person or in an email shouldn't be included on a business blog.
