I have been toying around with so many ideas on how to have the students do small group making words activities. We use Storytown Reading curriculum, and included is 28+ letter cards. They are nice, but hard to keep organized, hard for the students to sort, ect. I would really have to plan ahead pull letters aside in order to use these...
So then I went on to using making words cut out and write sheet. This also worked alright, but I felt like it still wasn't just clicking right, so behold the Making Words File Folder! BAM!
This is not my own idea, but from the lovely Teacher bits & blobs. I wish I thought of this! You can head over here to download the printable *FREE* paper. Print it out, glue it to a file folder, laminate, and then Wahlah! You have a easy to use, easy to store making words game!

It worked like magic today. Seriously. It was like love at first sight when I used these with the students. One of our students was able to spell our spelling word "back" today that usually has a very hard time spelling! WAHOO!! I love these moments!!
