I blogged about Word Work activities a week or so ago. I mentioned our Bead Spelling and the fact that my kiddos love it. I wanted to find a better way to store our beads for the activity so that students could find beads more quickly and be able to complete more words. Here was my solution:
First, I bought four of these containers. Each one has 12 compartments. I was originally thinking that I would use two of them so that almost every letter could have its own compartment. I changed my mind and decided I would consolidate letters so that more students would be able to do this activity. They will be happy. (Walmart did have bigger organizers that would easily fit all of the letters, but they were $9/each and these were only $2. Cheap wins.)
Then, I bought some letter stickers- only $1!
Then I sorted and sorted... and....
Voila! Bead Spelling is ready to go!
I got both sets of beads at the 'ol Walmarts- I like the top set better, but they didn't have any when I went back to get more, so I got the wood bead set. (below)
I have another fun Word Word idea to share soon- stay tuned.
Here is something else I'm going to be working on. This scary area is getting a makeover (I hope!).
Share some pics of your Daily 5 organization- I need some inspiration!!!
