Do you ever get so used to what you have been doing that you forget to look for something new? That happened to me this week.
We are just beginning our training on Word Work in Daily 5. I have the usual assortment of magnetic letters, tiles, doodle boards, etc. Well, as I was standing in Camille's room visiting with her during recess I started poking into her little Word Work drawers. (We just happened to be standing in front of them and I couldn't resist. We are pretty casual in our grade level and look at each other's stuff all the time, which is great!)
Anyway, lo and behold I discovered 2 NEW things. It was very exciting! I am sure they aren't new to anyone else, but in my defense, I have no little children at home anymore and so my exposure is rather limited. This combined with the fact that my husband is the Walmart shopper, means I am somewhat sheltered! ;)
Here they are:
This prompted me to
head back run to my computer to see where I could purchase these items. (I found them at Amazon, but they may also be available at your Walmart and Target.)
I decided to redo my Word Work area, so I made some new tags for my canvas drawers.
