How is Paperosophy made?
At DINAH.COM, Paperosophy is made by cutting out tens of thousands of words from magazines, newspapers, etc, then gluing those words to 11x17 sheets of paper. We then take those sheets of paper and scan them into the computer, crop them, and sort them to form all the various pages you see here.
Paperosophy is a time-saving aid for teachers who are looking for new and interesting ways to use Real World Print (also called Environmental Print) in their classrooms and with students through journaling or notebooking activities. Paperosophy pages present words organized by basic skills, phonics, parts of speech, literature themes, academic content vocabulary, and more. For example, there are pages for color words, numbers, shapes, initial consonant blends, CVC words, idioms, geology, space, volcanos, transportation, forces, and many other topics.
