Sometimes I wonder if I like making teaching materials more than actually teaching with them. (Please don't tell me I'm the only teacher who feels that way!!)
I have way too much fun hunting down engaging teaching tools on Pinterest ... and I love putting them together!
I recently made two activities for my "Word Work" Daily 5 center. The first is a clothespin word family activity:
The second is a paint strip word family activity.
I got the (free!) paint strips at Lowe's. They already had that nice little square cut out and they originally come in 3 strips. I just cut them down to one strip, laminated, and then created a laminated strip of cardstock programmed with different onsets to slip through.
And then! I even created this very simple word family recording sheet (the box is for a quick sketch of the word).
If any of you out there would like a copy of the recording sheet, shoot me an email:

Oh and PS: The kids love these activities!
