SOMETHING WORKS!

and so...

I needed some vocabulary words for MY classroom.
Different ones for EACH MONTH.
FAST & EASY for me.
High Interest for Kiddos.

TADA!

Vocabulary Banners!

I have a 
GAME  CHANGER
for YOU!



Tie a triple KNOT!
Yes, a TRIPLE KNOT...and staple it to one side of your board ( or window ).
Measure side to side. Add 3-4 inches!
Tie another triple knot and staple to the other side.
( I measured to make sure both sides were LEVEL.)
I know...those of you who kow me... I NEVER MEASURE!
EYEBALL  IT!
But...I want to do this ONE TIME...not taking down the yarn until the END OF THE YEAR!
Staple BOTH sides of the KNOT! 
The Knot will HOLD the yarn. NO SLIDING!



 

HERE IS THE 
GAME  CHANGER...
After you have laminated the banner ( OR TAPE THE TOP EDGE BEFORE 
you HOLE PUNCH!)
Use a hole punch to make two holes at the top.
I went down about ( No measuring there ) a 1/2".
THEN...
SLIT THE HOLE TO THE TOP!
( SEE  the  PICTURE )
WHAT??????
"NO! Then it will fall off!"
NOT!
No one is pulling on these. They are for 
LOOKING...NOT  TOUCHING!

What this does is allows you to change the BANNER page 
without having to 
remove & put up new string!

JUST CHANGE THE BANNERS!
YESSS!!!


Alternate sides when you add the vocab. cards.
I wanted an ODD number...
so I could have 1 in the middle.




Add another layer.
Same  directions.


I cheated in the middle layer.
Stapled the middle card ( so the arch would be close to the others).



TADA! 

WONDERFUL Vocabulary words at my writing center for kiddos to use!
BIG pictures...spelling...variety 
for EL's, independent work, & everyday  writing!
And i can change them each month...
IN A FLASH!
Just change the cards...not the string!

Here are  my











And so..
A GAME CHANGER
for me!

Here is a video to help:



Happy Back to School!


Are YOU  ready?
