Today's blog post will be a quickie. I was just so excited about my latest Target find, I had to share it with my teaching friends!
I knew it was going to be a good trip because this was the first thing I saw when I walked in the door. I could have bought absolutely nothing and seeing this sign would have made my trip worthwhile.
But thankfully that wasn't the case. I did find something. I found a TREASURE in the Dollar Deals section. This might be my most favorite find EVER! These little gems were $3.
So why was this such a big deal?! Well, earlier this week on my Facebook page, I posted an awesome sight word activity that I found from Carolyn at Kindergarten: Holding Hands and Sticking Together. She had her students build sight words using Mega Blocks. You can read her post here.
I loved the idea. I mean, it's pure brilliance to put sight words on TOYS! What kid wouldn't love that?! But, I was SO bummed because I didn't have the blocks to make the center. I had them at one point but now that I need them, I can't find them! Does that happen to anyone else?! Nonetheless, I shared the activity for all those lucky ones that might have the blocks tucked away in their closet.
Here's a picture of what the activity looks like. It's SO easy to prep. I just took a sharpie marker and wrote the letters right on the blocks.
I made a recording sheet to go with the activity. I want my students to write the words that they worked on. I really like having a recording sheet to go with most of my independent centers. I feel like it holds students accountable for their work. Also, it shows parents what their child is working on at school. So whenever it's possible, I try to include a recording sheet.
