My littles are still in the learning-to-read phase and often need some guidance to help them focus. One of their teachers suggested using a guide, of which she gave one of the girls a cut out of colored clear plastic. Well, her twin sister wanted one too, so I decided to get crafty and make them their own personalized reading guides.
Super simple to make. The window sheet is 2 x 7 inches, and the framed paper — Affectionately Yours DSP — has an opening about a 1/4 to 1/8 inch smaller so you have room underneath to adhere the window sheet to the framed paper. I added the 5/8″ mini striped ribbon and their initials. They can be used as bookmarks too!
Have a great day!!
Do you have a little one that loves dinosaurs? Do I have a fun little game for you!
The dinosaur memory game!
These were quite easy and quite FUN to make!
I used the No Bones About It stamp set. White cards stock cut at 4×4 inches, and base is +1/4 inch. I made 2 sets (4 cards) of four different dinosaurs.
Thanks for stopping by!
My daughters have been learning sight words throughout the school year, and sometimes I feel they could use a refresher. In the past I’ve put sticky notes on the mirror in the bathroom so they could review while brushing their teeth or fixing their hair. However, I wanted to make something a little more appealing, so I came up with this display.
This display is in the powder room, so they can read the words while they wash their hands. The goal is to read 5 words while they wash.
I printed the words on the computer and cut them out in strips. Then I stuck them to colorful card stock. I cut coordinating colors of Stampin’ Up ribbon and pinned the words to the ribbon using clothespins (p. 160 of the annual catalog) from Stampin’ Up.
I plan to change the words weekly, or every few days… depending on how well the girls know the words on display.
