Last week our story was, "Dot and Jabber and the Great Acorn Mystery" and our phonics skill was 'oo' as in spoon. I saw a cute spoon anchor chart on Pinterest. The teacher had written all the words on spoons. I thought that would be fun and I love to have my kiddos get up and move during our lessons. So................ I went to Target to get 100 plastic spoons. I probably didn't actually need 100, but in my head at that moment I couldn't accept anything less than a hundred. I also made an amazing find during my spoon bonanza at Target, because, well, duh, it's Target. As I was walking up to check out I passed these on SALE!
Once we had reviewed each group's sorted spoons, I tasked them with making a "Spoon" poster for their words that had the same 'oo' sound as in spoon. This is where those BIG post it notes made their appearance. As expected the kids thought it was amazing that they had big sticky post it notes. AMAZING!
And then the best part-- well, the best part to me, I picked up each post it note and stuck it to the bulletin board. No staples needed. YES! Quick, Easy and made a great display for the kids to refer back to during the week.
