Okay....so like the water thingy on my fridge is....like broken...like again! So, I'm a big filtered water kinda girl...yeah, yeah, I know the water in my area is supposed to be the BEST...but....it is what it is.
I found these cool bottles of water at ....wait for it....Target!
So my brain starts ticking and thinking that it would be really fun to have BIG word bottles to search for the words in....but....it would take a TON of rice to fill this baby....literally! And then there would be the noise factor and the weight factor...some of my firsties have the tiniest arms ever! So the challenge became what to put into the jar to have the kids swish around to find the words...not too loud...and not too heavy! And Viola!
Perfect filler for such a big jar and very quiet and light!
So now...what to write the words on....
from the Target Dollar Spot! Love it!
Now I have a huge jar of words to shake and find!
And then I thought I'd throw in some Debbie Diller and make a journal for the kids to record their words in so that we could keep a record of who finds what words on which date...tried to
use the I can statements I so love from her!
Thought I'd start the first couple of weeks with a Big Bottle O' Kindergarten Sightword Review!
