Collecting Words with kiddos

Last year I used a measly piece of chart paper for our word collector, an idea from Daily 5. Of course it lacked in many ways, but mainly in space. Well, inspired by Amanda from One Extra Degree in design and Beth Newingham in function, I created some beauties to tape to my unused white board on my back wall. I love the colored Duck Tape, and good ole Target now has designer patterns. I picked up some Hello Kitty, paint splatter, and tie dye! I am taping off my grid and taping these letters for a bigger, better word collector! I loved Amanda's idea of having the kiddos add words by putting them in a word jar...!
Happy Collecting!

  1. Thanks for the shout outs! :) This looks great! I can't wait to see what you share on your blog! It's been fun corresponding with you a bit...


  2. I can't wait to get in my room and get this up! Your stuff is adorable and I love orange, teal, green, and brown theme so I am remaking things. So excited-I found a store closing yesterday and bought a 6 foot bookshelf for my guided reading to make a-z labels for those too!
    Thanks for answering a few questions (ok, maybe not a few!)
