Mummy Lights and Power Words FREEBIE!

Well I'm so happy that it's fall time - but not so happy that my fall break is coming to an end!  Anywho, I've decided to share a little bit of my latest "Made-Its".

1. Mummy Lights
Using empty baby food jars, gauze, hot glue & googly eyes  I was able to craft these spookishly cute jars!  Just add a tealight candle or a flickering LED candle and you'll cast a spooky glow wherever you desire. :)

2. Power Words poster freebie
Recently, I attended a PD on Larry Bell's 12 Power Words - since I'm a retro 90s NBA fan I kept calling it Larry Bird's Power Words when discussing them with other colleagues.  Either way, I'm so happy that other creative minds have created gestures and uploaded these videos to school tube so my class and I can cement these academic words even better into our minds!  Here's the video I've been showing to my students.

Basically these are power words because they often appear on high-stakes testing and may serve as an obstacle for overall achievement if this vocabulary is unfamiliar.  Still not sure why trace is such a POWER-ful word - but I'll go with it.  You can download this freebie by clicking here.

Venture over to Tara Eiken's blog and see the gems that others have made for this month's Made-It LinkUp!
