Pinterest is a really great place where you can compartmentalize and save web sites and blog posts. Because of Pinterest I no longer have to email myself lists of websites for knitting techniques, kids activities, clothes I will never wear, and items for a house I will never own. Beware, Pinterest is great, but it can be a crazy internet time suck vortex.
Remember when I made baked s'mores? Pinterest made me do it.
When I say Pinterest 'made' me do it, I mean 'made' in the Saipan sense. You know, made as in allowed, let, permitted, guided, helped, etc. When someone from Saipan says made/make, it may not be as harsh as it sounds.
Can you make me smoke? (Can I have a cigarette?)
I made him sleep. (I put him down for his nap.)
She made me follow her. (She let me go along for the ride.)
Well, Pinterest made me do this too:
It's summer on Saipan (when is it not?) and I want to make sure my daughter doesn't lose all that she learned in the first grade and I also want my son to be ready for Kindergarten in the fall. Also, I need some quiet activities they can do in the house. So I created these write and wipe worksheet binders.
I bought two half-inch binders (I think they are half inch) and let the kids decorate a page for their front and back covers. Then I printed out a bunch of worksheets for each kid - cursive, math, writing, grammar, etc.
I put 10 crystal clear sheet protectors in each binder and put numbered tabs on each page so that each binder holds 20 total worksheets.
And every weekday we do home study where each kid has a certain number of worksheets to complete. When they're finished, we just wipe the sheets clean. Every Sunday I switch out the worksheets so they get a new set each week.
