MDS...other than scrapbooking
Ok...I am loving the new MDS. You simply must try it out!!! With a 30 day free trial, who can go wrong? Well, we went back to school a few weeks ago which is why I've been so absent in the stamping/blogging world. However, I got on MDS last night to create some numbers for my classroom. We are approaching math with a new adaptive program this year which is very cool. It's a little intimidating for many of us, but we are getting more and more comfortable with the idea. Our classes are divided into modalities each 6-day rotation. Each of the groups will go somewhere different on a daily basis according to what they know. The boys can move from group to group at their own pace. In order to make this visual for my guys, I created numbers on MDS, laminated them, and put magnets on the back. This way, I can move the magnets around daily to show the boys where they are going. Probably way to much information, but here are the MDS pages I used to create the numbers.
