Write On Plastic Pocket Charts

Check out this cool idea a reader submitted. It’s simple, but genius!
If you use a pocket chart to hold vocabulary words, you can diagram them right on the pocket! Use an overhead marker or a whiteboard marker to diagram words onto the clear front pocket of the chart! This way, you can leave it up for the week while you’re focusing on a specific principle, and you don’t have to write on the word strip.

Falling for Sight Words

falling for sight words sticker

I haven’t done much with sight words on this blog so far, so I thought I’d take advantage of the fun Autumn leaves and make a fall themed sight words worksheet for kindergarten or preschool. I suggest having the student color the word “yellow” with a yellow crayon and “orange” with an orange crayon, etc.  This way, they can still do the activity even if they haven’t mastered color words yet. This is a great activity for fine motor skills to color in the irregular-shaped leaves.  Enjoy!
