Horray! Back-to-school supplies are now in stores! If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know how I love my Walmart. So I was thrilled to see great bargins in the school aisle at my favorite store. Here are a few of items I found that would be great to have in your small group intervention area:
1. Locker mirrors. Mirrors are a must in any small group intervention area! When teaching letters and sounds, especially for those struggling readers, having them watch the placement of their lips, tongue and teeth while making the sounds is very helpful. These decorative mirrors are only 88 cents! They are the perfect size.
2. Dry Erase Boards- Dry erase boards are another must-have item for small group intervention. I found 2 different kinds of boards in the school supply area. The first dry erase board (laying on the bottom in the pic) is a 11 x 8.5 lined board. It was only 88 cents! My favorite board, however, is the 5.5 x 14 inch magnetic dry erase board. Students can either write or use magnetic letters to build words.
3. Index Card Container- This container was only $1.97. It will be perfect for storing sight word cards by lists. In the picture, I placed a sticker (Dolch Sight Word List 3) on the container.
4. Index Cards- Love these! These are simply index cards on a ring with a decorative hard cover front and back. It also has an elastic clip. In the picture above I placed a sticker on the cover for the sight words contained on the ring.
