Works for Wendy Wednesday-- Word Wall

One of the bloggers that I frequent has Works for Me Wednesday. For the life of me, I can't remember who it is now. So, if it's you, jot me a note and let me know. I appreciate the idea!! And, you know, imitation is the purest form of flattery. :-)

So, today's Works for Wendy is The Word Wall! We used wrapping paper as our "wall." I actually would have used a solid color, so it would be less distracting, but I didn't have any, so my Dayspring crosses had to do. Doesn't hurt to have Bible verses behind Ethan's words!!

Every time we add new words to his weekly spelling, we will add them to our wall. Of course, if we run out of space all we have to do is hang up more wrapping paper! I'm trying to group the words according to kind: pronouns, colors, position words.

This will be "officially" added to our schedule now, in the morning routine. And more on that later, perhaps in the next Works for Wendy Wednesday! :-)

Thanks, Tob! :-)

Ethan is 6-years old, kindergarten.

A friend pointed out that the flip side of the wrapping paper would have been a solid color, if that's what I wanted. Uh, yeah. Didn't think of that. Oh, well, Ethan can benefit from the crosses and Scripture! ;-)
