Pedaling Past...life

Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is off to a great start!


I almost forgot I had one more Pedaling Past card that I made at my crop awhile back! I had some leftover bits and this is how it turned out. I do like how the bike fits perfectly inside the wide oval punch! I also used the new alphabet, Rough Type, love it! I made this for the inside of the card:


Okay, here's last week school funny: we are working on our Saxon phonics lesson where we code words with certain patterns, etc. We put a box around suffixes, but you have to make sure once the box is around it that it's really a suffix and there is a root or base word left. Example, the "s" in dogs is a suffix, but the "s" in bliss is not.

So, another suffix is "ist" like in our "artist", but our word was "hoist". I think you see where this is going...one student came to the smart board and put a box around the "ist" leaving the "ho" and I say, "But if you do that, is "ho" a word?" Oh my! I had to do some FAST talking before anyone had time to respond to that!


That was kind of a long story, if you made it all the way through, thanks! lol! I hope you have a great day! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

That card is really fun. I was resisting this alphabet set because of the price, but I'm rethinking it...

That story is so funny! Let's just say that it's not a word in the grade you're teaching in!! hahaha!

I love your cards - and I love the story! As a retired elem. teacher I miss those moments. Once after a lesson on the rainforest (where it was noted that it was dark on the ground because of the canopy), I asked "So why aren't there a lot of flowers on the forest's floor?" And one little guy replied - "Because the florist would fall over them!" Of course he would! Enjoy those little ones!
