I found these paint chips that already had the holes cut out.
Then, I cut them apart and wrote word families on them.
I didn't like the idea of using another paint chip for the beginning of the words. It only lets you put a few letters on it. So, instead I chose to use paint stirrers. This let me put a lot more letters on it.
In case you missed it, I found out this week that I will be teaching kindergarten instead of first grade. I get to stay in the same room, though, so that's good! Once I get settled, you will see more kindergarten ideas than 1st grade ideas. Of course, most things can be adapted, but I just wanted to give you a heads up! I went ahead and changed my banner on my blog design, too!
Be sure to check out my Donor's Choose Project. Only one day left!
I sure hope you are enjoying getting ready for the school year!
