Shakers, tumblers, bottles!!! They are everywhere in one way or another....blogs, Pinterest....they are all different but have one thing in common...... they are all tools to help kids learn. I have posted about my Vocabulators (HERE), which are big versions of shakers. I also made Shake, Write, Learn Tumblers (HERE). Sunny Days made super cute Synonym Shakers (HERE) and my bud Reagan at Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits made awesome Discovery Bottles (HERE) and Third Grade Thinkers made Base word Bottles (HERE).....SO much inspiration and creativity and I'm sure there are tons others!
After a recent online assessment that correlates pretty closely with our big state test coming up, I saw some places I need to up my game with my peeps .....prefixes, suffixes, and base words was one place (I have plans for another theme coming up)! The Base word Bottles inspired me to make my own.
I'm calling mine Base Word Love...(gotta be the upcoming Vday thing) I am using the worksheet that Doris posted on her blog with her Base word Bottles:) (sadly I have some OCD traits....doesn't every teacher have a little???????? so I am sure I will have to make a work sheet that matches my bottles....I'm a mess)
I would LOVE to share the words I made for my bottles/jugs....they are more like jugs...I couldn't find bottles the size I wanted but base word jugs just doesn't sound good or right or ..................................
hence, Base Word Love.
I've posted them at my Teachers Notebook store for free if you want them:) Just click the pic:D
Now I must go....my vacuum and swiffer await!!
