Pin it to Win it!

Are you ready to play Pin it to Win it?
In this game, EVERYONE wins!

Here is how you can grab a freebie for helping to spread the word about the Homeschool Chicks' new site!

First, become a Homeschool Chick by following this site any way you prefer: Twitter, Facebook, Google Connect, or Email.

Second, follow our homeschool pinboard.

Check this out!

Third, pin the button image from {AWESOME BLOGS}.

Why should you be excited to share that image?
Because the Homeschool Chicks' blogroll is constantly updating and providing home educators with the latest news and teaching ideas in the homeschool community! Isn't that totally cool?

If you completed the three steps above, you are a winner- woo hoo!

Now do you want to know your prize? I know you are getting antsy!

I love using mnemonics when I am teaching. It just makes learning stick! Mnemonics is connecting the unfamiliar to the familiar by using the first letters of words to make new words that the student can easily relate to. For example, many of us grew up learning about the five Great Lakes in the US by using the mnemonic HOMES- Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior.

I compiled the mnemonic devices that I have used the most in the past 20 years of teaching into this packet:
  • mathematical order of operations
  • division procedures
  • roman numerals
  • liquid measurements
  • mode & median
  • conjunctions
  • parts of an atom
  • planets
  • Great lakes
  • main insect parts
  • vertebrates
  • colors of the rainbow
  • lines and spaces of the Treble staff and Bass clef

This freebie will only last until October 14 and then this Pin it to Win it will be closed.

Please tell your blogging and homeschool friends about this freebie
and let me know how you like it. :)
