"My name is Shelli, and it has always been a "conversation starter." I was named after my mom's friend, Sheila. I get a lot of compliments on the way it is spelled, although people do mispell it a lot. I get called Sheila, Shirley, and Sherry. When I correct people, they are always apologetic and it gets the conversation going!! Thumbs up!!! Thanks Mom and Dad!" Jan. 19, 2007:

"Revisiting Mathematics Manipulative Materials This article itelonus manipulative use in Western Australia. A survey was sent to all elementary and middle school teachers that asked about which manipulatives they have ever used and which are used most often. The article also talks about the need for proper training and professional development for teachers in order to use manipulatives effectively.Swan, P., & Marshall, L. (2009). Revisiting mathematics manipulative materials. Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 15(2), 13-19. Teacher Learning and Mathematics Manipulatives: A Collective Case Study About Teacher Use of Manipulatives in Elementary and Middle School Mathematics Lessons This article studied teachers use of manipulatives after a 20 hour training on using them. It was interesting because it not only showed lessons that using manipulatives didn't help, but it also was able to talk about effective professional development(since each group of teachers had just completed training prior to the lessons).Puchner, L., Taylor, A., O'Donnell, B., & Fick, K. (2008). Teacher learning and mathematics manipulatives: A collective case study about teacher use of manipulatives in elementary and middle school mathematics lessons. School Science and Mathematics, 108(7), 313-325. Origami Instruction in the Middle School Mathematics Classroom: Its Impact on Spatial Visualization and Goemetry Knowledge of Students In this article, a study was conducted to analyze the effectiveness of using Origami with middle school students to help them learn spatial relationships. It was found there was no difference in understanding of spatial relationships between the control group and the group doing Origami.Boakes, N.J. (2009).

"Growing up, I thought Shelly was a fat person's name, and Shelli was not any better. Until I met a Shelley, who I thought was seriously the coolest person I'd ever met (tall, good at basketball, beautiful, nice, talented, etc etc). I still have a hard time picturing "beautiful" Shell -i -ie -ey -y, but... I guess I figure they exist just as much as a fat Ashley or a skinny Ashley.
I get the same thing, "Sheila, Shirley, etc" and everyone spells it -ey or -y without even thinking. Even people that have known me for years." Mar. 31, 2008:
