Technology Tip Linky

You might have a hard time believing this, but I am not that much of a techie person.  I want to be... I vow to be... but when it comes down to it, I think I am in the "old dog" category.   Let's just say it does not come naturally to me.

Our technology director assures me that this is NOT technology...So I won't include the overhead!
These little do-dads are pretty awesome.  I got them last year from Learning Resources.  They allow you to quickly record 10 seconds of chatter.   Here is how I use them.  After I have introduced a new station, I discuss the instructions with my kiddos.  We decide which instructions I should record.  Then I flip them over  and record them while my kids are watching me.  Here is what one says from last year, "Roll the three dice.  Decide if the word you made is a real word or a silly word.   Write the word on your paper... No scribble-scrabble."

Then these go into the station bin and the kids can listen to the instructions over and over if they need to.
I sincerely LOVE my phone.  I lost it once last summer for like 8 hours and I was in the fetal position for the first 2 hours... NOT GOOD!

And I love my laptop... My sweet, sweet son ordered the skin for my Dell last year for my birthday!

How sad am I...  Not very techie... but I try!   I am certain you will find more advanced ideas over at Blog Hoppin... so check it out! 


  1. I love talk points! They are the BEST

  2. We're in the same boat with technology - but I think we've come pretty far considering we had typing class with vintage manual typewriters - and computer class was DOS - YIKES, didn't mean to age us any more : )

    PS-how sweet of your son to get you the skin!

  3. I am totally laughing... when I was in high school I had a typing class that had automatic typewriters WITH a correction button... so you didn't have to use the whiteout bottle or strips! HA!!!

    At the time I thought... WOW!!!

    Yes, my sweet sweet boy...Love him!

  4. Oh I love the decal! Such a great idea :) I need about a million of those recorder things for directions. Clever.

    You Might Be a First Grader...
