Polka Dot Letters

While making a Boggle game bulletin board 
{idea & printable Boggle form found here at Create*Teach*Share
I needed some cute letters and didn't have any. 
So I created some fun polka dot letters 
that I thought I would share.  


I used red polka dots to match my room but have tons of other colors of polka dots.  So if you'd like me to make them with a different background- just let me know!

  6. If you click on the link at the beginning of the post it will take you to a post where you can find the sheet they write the words on. The little thing hanging beside the clipboard is just a clip that holds the extra letters.

  8. Did you use tape for the letters to stay, or did you make them magnetic?

  10. I'm curious how you use this in your classroom... How do you introduce it to the students, what are the expectations for them, how often do you refer to it during the week, and how do you choose the letters you post? Thanks!! :-)

  11. It's used in my classroom for students who have already finished their work and I just randomly change the letters every few weeks- making sure to include some vowels and consonants. They use the sheet I linked to above is what the students fill out. Hope this helps!
