I have been practically dancing through the school supply aisles. I just love buying brand new markers, notebooks, crayons, pencils and paint. I find all sorts of things that I didn’t even know I needed...
At Walmart, I found this clipboards for $1.44. I bought 5 of them to use in my Work on Writing area. I am setting up this area for kids to come and get their supplies, then they can go back to their desk to write or find a different spot in the room to work. Then, I got the idea to make a little writing clipboard for the kids to reference. Since I will be teaching kindergarten, I wanted something super simple for the beginning of the year. I used this great Alphabet Chart from Tammy at Live, Love, Laugh Everyday in Kindergarten. Click HERE to see her post and pick up the alphabet chart. Make sure you leave her a comment! : )
I attached the alphabet chart with clear contact paper from Mardel ($2.99 a roll.)
As the year goes on I will probably add more information to the writing clipboard, but for now I think the alphabet chart will be the most helpful. When I create a new reference page for the clipboard I will make sure and share : )
What types of supplies do you keep in your writing center?
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
