The blackboards with the cursive writing letters above. This is when a blackboard was a blackboard!
The blackboards with the cursive writing letters above. Now our kids can't spell worth a damn, couldn't write in cursive if they had to but by god, they have a smart board in every classroom and an iPad for every kid! What a waste.
The blackboards with the cursive writing letters above. Kids today don't even learn cursive. they only print due to the use of computers
Classroom blackboards with cursive writing letters above...do they even teach cursive in schools any longer?
The blackboards with the cursive writing letters above were in every elementary school classroom.
Our teacher had a classroom helper who "clapped" the erasers together at the end of the day.

Library card catalog. Wonder if my son has ever seen one of these. They even had a minature one in the bookmobile!
Card catalogs. I swear I can still feel the smooth wood of the cabinet, hear and feel the glide of the drawer and smell the paper. Nerdy? You bet.
Can't wait to tell my kids that this is how we found books at the library back in the day! Good old card catalogue :)

Wow!! I remember my summer job at MHS, helping the librarian entering the new books into the library. Typing the cards,then putting the cards into the card catalog and books into the correct place .
we went through the card catalog to find the books and resources we needed. I completed a full 10 page research paper following this... couldn't imagine doing this now.
I miss this sooo much! we went through the card catalog to find the books and resources we needed.

Cursive Handwriting, Blast, Childhood Memories, School Cursive, Elementary School, Old School, Lost Art, Cursive Writing, Kid
Cursive writing ~Old School. Everyday, we had a 1/2 hour of cursive handwriting in our class, practice makes perfect!
We always had to do handwriting, and I always got Cs. I never understood what was wrong, which made it hard to improve. So I never actually made straight As in school. Cursive writing ~Old School
Cursive writing ~ old school ~ Definitely a lost art!. I got my hand smacked for not holding the pen correctly. Kids today can't even do cursive writing.
Old School cursive writing. They want to do away with teaching this to kids. What a travesty that will be; do they think you will always have access to a keyboard?
Cursive writing ~Old School ... and damn it, this is a LOST ART!!! They should teach it and make the kids USE it too!
Old School Cursive writing. Too bad kids don't have to practice like this now.
Remember seeing this in Elementary School!! Cursive writing ~Old School

90 S, 70 S, Childhood Memories, Memory Lane, Cats Cradle, Kid
Cat's Cradle was a game that girls played. I never saw a boy play this game. We also played hopscotch and jacks. Do kids play these games nowadays?
Do you remember this???? Doing cats cradle and crows feet string patterns would keep me entertained for hours. Kids today don't know what they're missing
Do you remember this???? I played, taught my kids to play it and play it with my grand kids! Cats cradle
Cat's Cradle -- Video game of the '50s! Bet there not a kid alive today who knows what to do with this.
Cat's Cradle - hours were wasted in elementary school on the playground with this. I guess now kids are on their cell phones doing futures trading.
Cats Cradle - Great Summer Game & entertain the kids while travelling or waiting at an airport
Cats Cradle - OMG i always did these string games as a kid

Library card pockets. These were inside the front cover of every library book. Originally the due date was hand written, but later they used rubber stamps.
I remember when we signed out our library books on these cards, then handed the card to the librarian.
For anyone born after 1990: This is the check-out card glued into the back of library books. A librarian would hand-stamp the due date in on one of the blank lines.
I remember when . . .. The date due was stamped on the paper in your library book so you'd know when to return it.
I remember when . . ..this was inside a library book. They would stamp it out and in..if overdue it was 2 cents a day late fee. You could check it out for 2 weeks. I read lots of books. I would wake up early and read , my Dad would get mad at me for being up so early! Lol
These were in library books. It was how you checked the book out. Sign the card and give it to the librarians.
I remember when you had to fill out the card from the back of the book to check out a library book

Once upon a time, we actually had to search for things the old fashioned way.

Finding books in the library - old school. The card catalog and Dewy decimal system! Seeing this picture brings back all of the memories of the sounds and smells of the old library at Erwin High School.
Remember when you used to go to the library and had to have your special library card taken off you so that the book card could be stored inside your library card until you returned your books.
I don't even know what I would file in them, but lately I'm obsessed with the idea of having an old-fashion library card catalog chest of drawers in my home.
Loved going to the library. Ya know when you had to look things up in the card catalog and be quiet....way before it all went to shit. ha
Brown dress with white dots. Library Card Catalog. Don't see these any more, especially these old drawers.
Remember when you used to go to the library and had to have your special library card taken off you so that the book card could be stored inside your library card until you returned your books. Aww ... the new computerised system has nothing on the old fashioned feeling you got, and the sense of responsiblity you felt for your borrowed books.
Not so long ago. And I still sort of miss it! Finding books in the library - old school. The card catalog. I kind of need one in my house. How cool would that be?!

Sliding Number puzzle, I remember playing this game the first time, while sick in bed. I still have it.
Yes, I remember ... Sliding Number puzzle. I used to play it when we traveled in the car.

In The Library by Tatsuro Kiuchi. Prints available from $60. Don't let your kid miss out on going to the library. Even if it is in the form of art. #libraries #nursery #babyshower
In The Library, by Tatsuro Kiuchi In his own words "ARTIST STATEMENT As most of my works are illustrations, subject matter usually comes from the external world—nature, people, animals, economics, politics, science and so on. Within the given pictorial frame, I try to view things differently in order to come up with unique compositions whenever possible."
I am a huge believer in books as art, in whatever form they may take. This print by the brilliant Tatsuro Kiuchi is one lovely example. (via Pikaland)
In the Library by Tatsuro Kiuchi framed print. Cute for kids room or play room.

Solitaire card games -We played in a big circle with multiple decks of cards and everyone could play on the cards in the middle. It was bedlam.

Another weaving project! This time using those Looper Looms from the 80's! It is a fun way for kids to create a pot holder, something they can keep or give as a gift, while also practicing the important skill of weaving! Great exercise for those finger muscles too!
POT HOLDER weaving LOOM & loops. these things were fun as a kid! and I bet even now as an adult! you can still buy these! amazon and walmart sell them!
Potholders for mom. Came in a kit and kept the kids busy for a while. Great for Christmas gifts. :)
had one of these weaving looms. one can never have too many potholders. LOL I made tons on pot holders.
Weaving pot holders I gave my grand daughter this for Christmas this year... she re gifted it to someone else... LOL
Weaving looms - my sister and I made potholders in every color imaginable; we were going to be millionaires!

5146 - AquaPro Strapped Speedster Swim Cap
Swim caps - required for swimming in so many public pools. God how I hated these!!
Hated Wearing, Childhood Memories, Swim Caps, Hair
plastic swimming cap. i HATED wearing one of these. We had to have these whenever we went to a public pool.
All women and girls were REQUIRED to wear these in any public swimming pool. Supposedly to keep hair out of the filter. I had one COVERED in plastic flowers. (BTW...they did NOT keep your hair dry!) "Rubber Swimming Caps - hated these!"
Rubber Swimming Caps, uncomfortable and your hair still got wet. But once boys started growing their hair long, bathing caps disappeared.
Rubber swimming caps. Very hip in the 60s and 70s. I had lots of really long hair and could not keep it all tucked in. Hated wearing these.
I hated these!!! We had to wear rubber swimming caps at the pool... uncomfortable and your hair still got wet. (Required for swimming in any public pool - females HAD to have them. Girdles for head)
Swimming caps -- these were required at swimming pools to prevent long hair from clogging the drains -- they really didn't keep your hair dry.
Why does Barbie need a swim cap? Rubber bathing caps "to keep hair dry while swimming"
Don't ask me about this!! One of my worse childhood memories.
Rubber Swimming Caps - hated these! #swimcaps #80s

this looks like the very first record player I was given. Along with the albums of Donny & Marie Osmond and The Jackson 5.
We had a few different record players. I always remember my sister and I playing records in our playroom. We had all kinds of records...one of the many perks of having grandparents who owned the town's music store! No wonder I love music so much <3
