First, let me say thank you for purchasing this set of stretchers. They can be used anytime during the year as you see fit. You may use 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 at a time. Let students, create words, make lists, come up with events, names, know music, festivals, politicians etc.
I used this at various times to reinforce geography in my classroom plus it always helped with retention of facts before the BIG test. The answers will always vary due to the fact that student had different parishes – either I chose or sometimes they chose but I always told them "any parish but the one they were in" which also kept me on my toes. I like learning new items about all the various parishes and sometimes I had to go back to double check the student's information but it kept both of us 'honest'.
When I do this for ALL classes I teach I get multiples of some parishes and almost none of others but that keeps me guessing each year. From our vantage point in deep southwest Louisiana sometimes I none from the very northern parts of Louisiana and sometime I get way to many from our neighboring parishes but other times I have a check list that students have to check/choose from. So, you just never know from year to year.
Email/text me about questions you may have.
