Last week I blogged about my Bloomin’ Peacock, a new Bloom’s Taxonomy visual I made to share with teachers in a training. Over the years, I have created a number of Bloom’s Taxonomy pictures to hang in my classroom for students to refer to. My Bloomin’ Peacock was such a hit with you all, I thought I would start sharing the others I’ve made. Today I revived one that I created for my classroom and added the digital version (again the digital tools displayed relate directly to the Treasures reading curriculum). This is my Um-bloom-ra Bloom’s Taxonomy:
…and the digital version:
Here are the digital tools included in my taxonomy:

Some of you have asked what program I use to create my Bloom’s Taxonomy re-imagines, I use Apple’s Pages to create them (it is SO much more than a word processor!). Pages makes creating easy, the only downside is that the images aren’t big enough to make into posters larger than 8.5″ x 11″. Luckily I married a graphic artist and after the initial laughter that I used Pages instead of something like Photoshop or Illustrator, he agreed to help me make a larger poster happen.
If you are interested in my Bloom’s images on a mug, mousepad, tote bag, etc. you can find it in my store.
