You're right! I was just having fun, but it might be useful. I'm going to edit and make the whole thing free/public domain. When I taught, years ago, I used to write all my own resource material. Kids always preferred it to the packaged stuff.

By the way, happy, happy birthday. So young, so much ahead of you. Great things in your future 🎂🌟

Making your own material is always better, especially when you can adjust t to your kids' needs and abilities. Did you keep a blog with your projects?

Thank you so much for the lovely wishes sweet @agmoore! 🤗💖

You're welcome! Hope you are enjoying your vacation 🎈 🏓

I only taught for six years: 1990--96. I kept stacks of what I wrote in hard copy but of course let that go in time. Nice part about writing for your own classes is you know the individual weaknesses of the students and can address those. You can also modify and hand out a new edition if the first doesn't work.

I think that writing for a specific audience helped me to hone my skills. It was important to be economical--not use more words than necessary--because otherwise the kids would lose interest. I taught social studies, which students find particularly boring :) so making the copy entertaining was a challenge. I remember shamelessly exploiting the birthmark on Mikhail Gorbachev's head. All I had to say was "unfortunate birthmark" and the lesson would come alive. My apologies, and gratitude, to Mr. Gorbachev.

You took me down memory lane with this comment. Thanks, @ruth-girl. Have fun, with your students and your sweet family 😇

Oh, your subject was challenging, therefore you had to pull out all your weapons :P
It is fun to make up tricks to help students both memorize and stay interested in the lesson. A teacher's job is demanding, just like you did with Mr Gorbachev.

I wish you have a lovely new month @agmoore! May it bring you lots of beautiful moments with your people!

And you also, my dear young @ruth-girl. Have fun, every day. It's spring...a gift 😇
