Making Words Fun!

Happy *almost* Sunday Everyone! I'm excited to finally have my Making Words packet posted on TpT!! It includes 25 hands-on, multilevel activities that provide endless possibilities for discovering how our alphabetic system works. As your sweet students have fun making words, they increase their word knowledge, discover patterns, and become better readers and writers. Each word comes with a set of adorable letter cards and a coordinating recording sheet! Click on the picture below to swing by my lil' TpT store to check it out!

And here's a little something for my A.W.E.S.O.M.E followers!

What is the easiest way to store all of these? I've already downloaded, printed, and laminated all of them. Also, how do you store all of your games (I've gotten most of them!)? I've been using ziploc bags, but wanted to see if there was an easier and cheaper way. Thanks!

Anna Brantley said...

I like to put them and all my other centers in ziploc bags, too! I like to store the bags in expandable pocket file folders. This way you can easily put them in your filing cabinets! I have a picture of the pocket file folders in an April post about my centers. I'm not sure if this is the cheapest way...the expandable pocket file folders are expensive, but I have seen them for a dollar a piece at Classroom Direct. Hope this helps!!

@ Jan, Jennifer, Alysia, Lauren, and Petalwisp~ THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Shelia said...

Thanks! I'll keep doing the ziploc bags and check into the expandable pocket file folders.

On the ziploc bags, do you use a large one and then put smaller ones in it for the smaller pieces? Like for the make a word games, the pieces are small, but the title page is large. Do you include the title page with it?
One thing I have done with my ziploc bags, I do a hole punch so when the students close up the bag most of the air will go out.
