Magic Marker Monday: Word Wheel

Summer school work that comes home in James' backpack is refreshingly meaningful this year. Also, well-thought out and relevant for what he's been learning in school.  Such a nice change from last year!

On Monday, James brought home a word wheel. His teacher this year said is was helpful for her regular classroom with full inclusion students, and she said it went over well in the class that day.
Nice sun and detail on that pail!

The wheel underneath has 5 letters and matching pictures.

When we got home, we practiced words together. James' big sister was quick to remind me she'd made a ladybug word wheel back in Kindergarten. That made James beam.

I'll bet we can fit a few more summer-themed wheels -- maybe one like a clock (dock, sock, rock, lock) or tree (knee, see, bee, whee) ...

I just love hearing about James' connection with his sister -- puts a grin in my day too! A word wheel is a great idea for a school craft. Nice work, James!
