Hi Groovy Grandma. I love your products and have most of the items you have posted. Your classroom is absolutely awesome! I am in the process of using the fruity dots package and noticed that the word "comprehend" is missing the "h" on the I Pick poster. Would it be possible to fix that?
I also would like to make different labels for schedule and drawer labels. Do you have this in a word format? Thanks for your great products. They are brightening up my dark dungeon (no windows) room. :-)

I didn't really put other topics. What it has is a four square prewrite and publishing page that can be used with any personal narrative. It also contains a bunch of time order words that kids can use when telling their stories. I use it all year with the Treasures Language Arts Program.

Buyer re: Portable Word Wall Book for Tables
This looks great! Last year I tried a hanging word wall to save on space but it was still too much traffic during our writing time. Your design seems like it will be the perfect solution. Could you tell me how you assemble them? Are they meant to be glued to notecards, file folders, or as a stapled booklet? Thanks for any tips you can share.

The Groovy Grandma  (TpT Seller)
I laminated each page. I made the covers with card stock paper to make them more sturdy. Then I used one of those curly binder machines. They are still like new this year. Our district has a machine. Ask around and I'll bet you can find one at an elementary or high school. Good luck and thanks for giving it a try.
