However, this year I am making a point of doing these as part of my daily routine. I started it with my first graders at the start of the year and will start my Kinder kids in 2nd or 3rd quarter. So I began this and it was going well. I would write them on my white board and we would edit it. However, I wanted my students to see the proper handwriting on a sentence strip, so I decided I would write them out on a sentence strip. THEN I hated the waste. 1 sentence strip a day? That is a lot of wasted paper and those suckers are expensive. I struggled and because I did not like it I often missed doing them.
Yesterday I stopped making excuses and I decided I would laminate 5 sentence trips! My brain must have turned on or something because it is not the first time I laminate a sentence strip. I have one to write the date on my easel. Anyway, I label them, Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs and Fri on the back.
I added a clip to them and clipped them on my Easel, but them realized, I would have a hard time flipping them daily if I had a big clip on them. So I got rid of the clip.
Then I attached a handy dandy Command hook to to my wall and hung them up.
FYI, Initially I wrote the sentences with dry erase makers. I knew this would be difficult, because they rub off so easy. By the time I wrote them all out and put them up, they had rubbed off. I decided I would write them with permanent marker. Did you know that if you get permanent marker on something laminated, or a dry erase board, you can simply write over it with a dry erase marker and it wipes away! This is what I will do. I will write my weekly sentences out on Friday, or Monday morning. then edit them daily, and erase them all on Friday. :)
Hope this is helpful to you.
Enjoy the day.
