I'm babysitting for my friend who is Florida this week. Her doggy, Fletcher, is PRECIOUS and is Bella's boyfriend. They wake me nightly chasing each other around the kitchen table. This was my view as I ate dinner tonight.
|They look like they are STARVING, don't they? Haha!|
This was my water bottlecap booty before.
My first project I decided to do with the caps was a making words activity. I cleaned the caps and then applied 3 sets of alphabet stickers. I wanted to be sure we had plenty of letters. Then I Modge Podged the stickers on so my little darlings won't be able to peel off the stickers.
|This is how they turned out!|
|This is how the sheet will be used.|
Here is the sheet if you'd like to use it! I know it's not lined up perfectly. My first graders won't care! Mostly I'm very particular, but not tonight it seems. C'est la vie! Click the pic to download (if Google Docs is cooperating).
I had plenty of caps left over so I decided to use them to help my firsties practice their numbers. Several had much trouble this year identifying numbers after 50 and especially after 100. I just wrote the numbers on with a sharpie and then Modge Podged over the number to prevent rubbing off. The idea is that they should be able to put the caps on this chart in order and then write them on another chart.
I'm very frustrated with this chart. It needs to be a bit bigger for the caps to fit perfectly, but I absolutely could NOT get the boxes any bigger. I took the margins away. I tried it in Word and in PowerPoint. Grr!! I'm sorry! I will take this to school and slightly blow it up before I laminate these. Give me some tips if you know how I could have made them bigger. I hope you can use it anyhow! Click the pic for the Google Doc. I hope it works..Google Docs has not been nice to me tonight!
All in all, I had a very productive day! I didn't even nap today! Haha!
Are you working on any projects?
