My teaching partner wears a different button every day, and the students love to figure out what each says. Some days she is "off-beat" (imagine a purple beet here) or acts as a "sous chef" (thinking picture of a cute cartoon-like chef here) . Sorting through the buttons at one of our favorite shops led to the find of the the latter, one I knew she did not have. She found one appropriate for me: "shutter bug" (imagine a beetle-like insect here).
An often collaborative colleague asked if the students could make them (larger size, with the button-maker). They have loved creating their own rebus nouns and adjectives, and I love reading them.
