Tuesday Tried It - Sound Bytes

We've become a people of sound bytes.  It's an interesting communication phenomena.

I recently printed out several (at least 40) different illustrated sound bytes from the LDS October General Conference and used them in class.  I found them all on Pinterest (which sent me all over the internet including to the Chocolate on My Cranium and Inkhappi blogs).

Each student received one card with a quote.  If it was meaningful to them they recorded it in their journals along with an explanation of why it was important to them or how it could help them.  They passed the cards and started the process all over again.  This continued several turns and the kids enthusiastically participated.

Kids love sound bytes.  They quote movies.  They quote songs.  They quote TV shows.  They quote each other.  Now they can quote General Authorities.

I so love all these conference quotes! What an awesome way to help the kids remember conference. I am almost finished relistening to all of Conference and am amazed by how much goodness there was this time around (though really there always is!).

Thank you Janey Payney for the cute Trick or Treat gift you sent me today!!!
