I created a several pages of the alphabet using several different fonts. I copied them onto different colored papers and cut out all of the letters. Students use the paper tiles to create lists of words they are working on.
I created the little penguins out of rocks similar to First Grader...at Last---Sarah Cooley did earlier this week. I just loved them and needed a set myself. I couldn't find any black little marbles so I got black rocks instead. They are all different shapes and sizes and I like how they all have their own personality. My plan is to use them as an incentive for good behavior. I also made some smiley faces, too, from the glass marbles. More incentives. So fun.
