Great Ideas

  We all have great ideas, sometimes.  Making notes when they come has been important for me, simply as a way to remember and access them again at other times.  This page has some of those ideas, and others that have come by trial and error.

A Better Way to Make Cards?

  If you have a better way to make cards, please share it with us!  My lack of expertise in the media technology field must be obvious by now.  I still haven't come up with a better way to make cards than formating them onto a standard sized piece of paper, then printing, copying and cutting them.  I think formating 2 standard sized playing cards onto a plain postcard will be my next attempt, as well as making an online cardmaker program.  Got a better idea?  Help us all out!  

Printing and Cutting Card Sets

First you'll need to download the card set files.  Click here for the file links.  

For Card Set 1, print and cut 2 of each page for each deck.  

For Card Set 2, print and cut 1 of each page of Card Sets 1 & 2 for each deck.  

For Card Set 3, print and cut 1 of each page for each deck.

Marking Your Card Sets 

  When playing in a large class with several small groups, and with several decks of cards, it is inevitable that, after all the card decks have been collected, a student brings forward a stray card.  Which deck does it belong to?

  When making the card deck folders, mark each with a number, and then be careful to always pass out the decks in an order you can remember.  Then, when the stray card comes forward, just ask the student which group they were in.

  If you're not printing too many decks, each deck can be printed on a different color of paper.

Making Rounded Corners

  Corner cutters can be bought that will cut a rounded corner onto photographs or cards.  Try Jumbo Encho, or another home center or stationary supply store or catalog.
