Home(work) for the Holidays

Most of the family got together last weekend to celebrate DH's birthday.  Such fun!  The DGDs had just received their first trimester report cards and we were asking, as Grandparents MUST do, how they had progressed.  S confessed that she had been asked to master her multiplication facts through 4 over the holidays.  Poor S!  Everyone tried to help by springing multiplication questions on her at random moments!

Later that evening, I remembered the 'Flip Chute' that I had made 100 years ago when student teaching and how that had made the memorization process a fun game.  DH did his part by finishing off the carton of chocolate milk and after it was washed and dried, I added the card stock chutes inside and covered the outside with DCWV paper.  To make it seasonally appropriate, I used my Imagine and the Snow Angel cart to decorate the outside.  I finished off with plenty of Stickles and bling! 

If you haven't ever seen one of these before, you read off the question and post the card in the top slot.  You must answer the question before the card flips and presents the answer through the lower slot.  Very cute!   Is your mind racing with possibilities?  Parts of speech, states and their capitals, historical dates?  LOL!   

I am linking my Flip Chute up with the challenge at
