Making Words Makes Better Readers and Writers

If you know me very well, or have looked at many of my items in my shops, you know that I am a big advocate of making words.

Working with word families is an effective way to get kids reading and help them learn to decode longer words. Learning to read should be a hands-on experience.

 Kids love using rubber stamps to make words too!

Kids make lots of words with magnets and my 'Let's Make Words' book. I just enlarge the pages on the copy machine to make them larger. I have also used smaller cookie sheets with the smaller pages.

Using write-on/wipe-off pouches from Lakeshore Learning, children are able to make words using dry erase markers. You know how they love markers!

Get your kids making words like crazy! I'd love to hear how your kids make words in your room! 

Have a Fabulous Friday!
