Whenever the sticky note loses it's sticky, you just quickly make a new one for whatever letter you need. I love it! Sooo...I made some templates on my trusty MAC and viola, new making words folders! I also color coded the sticky note letters, to help my firsties remember the beginning middle, ending sounds, and digraphs when we make words together!
word family sort Word Family drawers Each drawer contains a card with the word family and several foam squares with various onsets to make words. The card in each drawer has a list on the back of all the words that can be made for that Word Family so the students can self-check. There is also a recording sheet to mark down the words they make so that I can see what they do as well.
