Monday Made It!

I'm linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics again for
Yesterday I posted about sight word practice.  Click {HERE} to read.  To help my students practice their sight words even more, I made Tara's Shake, Write, and Learn Tumblers.  When I saw this idea I was instantly hooked!  I know my kids will love doing this activity and I think it compliments WBT's SuperSpeed 100/1000 very well.  While SuperSpeed works on reading sight words, the Shake, Write, and Learn Tumblers focus on spelling and writing sight words.  By using both, my students will have a great grasp on sight words!

While I was reading up on WBT, I read Tonya's post and followed the link to Ashley at The Polka Dot Patch.  She has the WBT rules you can download and print, so I did that and attached them to ribbon.

I teach at a Multiple Intelligence (MI) school and love how well the strategies from WBT align with MI.  I will definitely be spending more time this summer reading and watching videos from WBT.

For more fun items, I made these bookmarks from paint samples that I picked up at Walmart.  I had a star punch that I used along the sides, then tied some silver ribbon to the top.  I plan to pass these out at meet your teacher day.

Don't forget to link up and share what you've done this week!
