Awesome Tool

If you're looking for a quick resource for Environmental Print to use with your students, try Spell With Flickr. It's been around for a while, but is remains as a great tech tool.

Here's a quick tutorial for using Spell With Flickr:

Just think of the fun you can have creating games, name puzzles, numeral activities and more! Take a look at a few videos I made using images found using Spell with Flickr:

Thank you for sharing this - I did not know about it, either. I plan on using this to introduce our new "popcorn" words. Also, you could use it to "announce" your student-of-the-day. You could even pause the video after each letter and ask the class to figure out who it could be. Can't wait to try it!
