GIVE EACH OF YOUR STUDENTS OR FRIENDS A ROUND TUIT… CAUSE EVERYONE GETS AROUND TO IT EVENTUALLY

Do you have trouble putting things off? I know I do! Last week I was at a workshop and they gave each of us a little round disk called a TUIT. A Round Tuit is a play on words, from the idiom “to get around to it.” Round TUITs first appeared at the 1964 World’s Fair which was held in Queens (Flushing), New York. No one knows where TUITs originated, but in the 20th century, a poem appeared which used the play on words. The poem read:
This is a round tuit. Guard it with your life! Tuits are hard to come by, especially the round ones. It will help you become a much more efficient worker. For years you’ve heard people say “I’ll do that when I get a round tuit.” So now that you have one, you can accomplish all those things you put aside until you got a Round Tuit.

Everyone at the workshop thought they were so neat, and I thought they were a great idea to give to our students and to give out to teachers at workshops, so I made my own version of a Round Tuit which I thought was cuter and much more economical.

I made a number of Round TUIT designs to give to your students or colleagues. Just print them out, laminate, cut them out, and they are ready to go! You will need to print the poem on the back side of the paper.  I  made the background on the backs larger than the front so that if your printer printed the back page slightly off, you would still have the poem perfectly centered. I notice that in the preview, some of the words don’t appear to be spaced correctly, but they are perfect in the printed out version.  I think compressing the photo made the spacing appear off.   The ones I printed out came out perfectly and I gave them to some friends last week who have had a blast with them! All designs have a black/white version so you can print them out on colored paper instead of using color ink. There is a generic design and designs for students, teachers, and homework. I put a different poem on the back of my TUITs which you can see in the pictures below. My TUITs are available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. You can click on the picture below to purchase them if you wish.  I did made the background on the backs larger than the front so that if your printer printed the back page slightly off, you would still have the poem perfectly centered.

I hope you and your friends have fun with these little TUITS!

Remember to always…  Keep ’em Thinking!
