Word Builder Slides....Easy Peasy!

I love a good idea.  A good idea that is free...well that's even better. I found one over at The Snail's Trail blog.

Check out these word builder slides. All it took to make them were some paint sample cards and a permanent marker.  The nice folks at my neighborhood Wal Mart gave me the paint sample cards.  I needed about 35 (2 3/4 x 5 1/2) single colored cards and 15 (2 x 9) multi colored cards.

I wrote word families on the large cards and beginning phonemes and diagraphs on the multi colored cards.  It took about 15 minutes to make. Easy peasy!

for posting this idea!

Those are adorable! I know I have tons of paint samples that I can use. How fun! What did you use to cut the circles?

Hi Sheri! The large paint cards already had the holes cut in them. They were perforated, so I just needed to punch them out. Too cool was that! Thanks for checking out this post!!
