Target Dollar Spot Idea!

Hello friends,

Long time no see! 

Today I would like to share with you a very simple and useful idea from a versatile item from Target's dollar spot.

Like many of you, I've been stalking all of the Target's in my area and adjacent towns in search for mini erasers, of course, word spinners, name templates, organization containers and whatever they have to offer, really!!!

When I came across the magnetic letters, I really didn't think anything of it - I have tons in the classroom. But when I saw the back of the packet, the light bulb went off! 

I am constantly searching for quick and low prep ideas for centers. When I saw these magnetic letters, I thought of creating a simple center to practice letter identification and discrimination, and there's two versions of it.


Step 1:For my younger students I chose to color code the letters based 
on the magnetic letters on the packet.
A variation of this step is to leave the letters in black and 
white to make the activity more challenging.


Step 2: Laminate it. It would last longer and the marker ink won't smear.


Step 3: Match the letters and learn.
I always place the small pieces that would be sorted or moved in 
any way on the left side to promote left to right progression.

That is it! Simple and very low prep.

Keep learning!
