This is a super fun idea that I learned from Kim Jordano last weekend!
Grab one of those free lanyards that you have laying around from a conference you’ve been to. You can fancy it up a bit – I didn’t have time, but I think I’ll hot glue some gems around the edges!
Slip a word that you are working on in the pocket, and choose a kiddo to wear it. Children can whisper the word into that child’s ear throughout the day. (Obviously, you’ll have to teach when it’s okay to do it!) Then they write the word and their name on a piece of paper and put it in the whisper word box! They practice identifying the word and writing the word! The child that is wearing the word will know that word REALLY well by the end of the day.
At the end of the week, pull a name out of the box for a special prize!
