New and AMAZING lid Idea!


I love stamps during my literacy center but they quickly get messy or get lost! SOOO I made FREE stamps for each center! They are simple to make and my students prefer them the Lakeshore ones that I already had!


Step 1: Collect lids! I prefer med size Gatorade or these lids like below
Step 2: Label the top side of the lid. I used my cricut and vinyl to die cut the letters but I could have done the same thing with a sharpie.

Step 3: precut foam letters. (I know you already have some in your classroom) Make sure you glue it on backwards so that when it is stamped it will be correct.



This is the same thing made out of Gatorade lids!

Then I got this cheap tool box at Target for 7 dollars to organize my stamps. The students can pull out the letters they need to stamp their sight words and they know where to put them back. I also die cut the letters for the front of the drawer with my cricut and vinyl!

The gameboards are from the Dollar Tree! We just took the little pieces and wrote the sight word on the back and then wrote the same sight word on the board. They pull a piece, read the word and place the item in the hole! 


This is the tree version of this game!





Everyone loves this fun science experiment. I started with this Little Debbie Cookie. 



Each Student drew what he looked like before he was in the water and what he looked like after we placed him the water. We predicted what we would thought would happen.

I love using free items in my lessons! Each of the student brought in 10 candy wrappers and we sorted by  color too! This is the Tree Map that we created for the hallway!
