Sit Spots


I had never seen these large Velcro dots before until my teacher friend, Marilyn, put them in the hall for her students.  How handy is that?!

 

They are about 3" wide and made of plastic with heavy Velcro backing.  They grip the carpet really well, so I don't think they will be bothered by foot traffic or the vacuum cleaner.

The ones I found on Amazon are 5" wide and very reasonably priced.

If any readers have used these, leave a comment letting us know if they served your purpose well and how they lasted.

Back to School for Year 47

It's that time once again.  Still enjoying my job, my calling. So I'll keep going until that changes.

 

Just whipped out this set of bottle lid alphabet manipulatives with glittery stick-on letters.  Notice I put a line on the bottom edge of each lid so the kids can orient the the letters correctly.

 I put letter stickers on craft sticks that are just a bit wider than a regular popsicle stick.  Kids can alphabetize them according to upper or lower case, draw a stick and identify the letter, or use to spell words.
