I printed my Thematic File Folders that I had previously purchased from Erica Bohrer on TPT. I got my supplies ready...colored file folders, glue stick, paper cutter (to trim them up to fit) and I got busy. This while the kiddos were actually taking a nap.
So here is a couple pics of my finished product. I intend on using them mainly for inspiration with writing, but I also thought it will be great to use some(Cooking, Junk Food, Fruits and Vegetables) in housekeeping during play centers and get them to write grocery lists, or who knows what. I intend on trying to pull out the Birthday one on days when a student in the class has a birthday! Teeth for when someone comes in wanting to share their story. I see tons of possibilities!
I am very excited about these. I am hopeful it will help get some of my students writing better because of the help with words they want to write but are afraid to try to sound out. We shall see.
Now I want to share an EPIC FAIL!!!!!
Well I am off to see what I can add to my to-do list as I look at everyone else's Monday Made It's! Have a great week. See you next Monday!
