We have this board hanging above our kitchen table. The day starts with us going over it, with something there for all of the kids.
I’ve made some free printables for what goes on our weekly learning board. You can find them all HERE.
This is what I’ve included:
TIER 2 WORDS – We go over these so they learn the meaning of more complicated words, while using the letter of the week for the preschool age as the beginning sound.
SPELLING – These are always current for school year, or review over summer. For instance, shown are my 1st grader’s words. My 2nd grader is past having actual spelling words, so we use the tier 2 words to challenge his spelling.
This weekly learning board is very easy to make. I used a canvas panel to start:
I wrapped 1st side like a present, and hot glued ends. I then covered other side, folding over edge of fabric, and gluing along side of panel. After crisscrossing ribbon on side that would show when board was flipped over, and embellishing, I glued ribbon around sides to cover any messy ends. A simple eye hook was inserted into top, with a ribbon slid through to make a loop for hanging.
For the letters, numbers,etc., I just cut cardstock pieces in different colors, cut out each item to attach to it, and glued on. You can easily use your own drawings and writing on paper for these, but if you want them ready to go, don’t forget to check out my free printables above.
The last piece is the day and date. I decided to do this as a write-on, instead of more print outs to pin on, so I can write messages on there – Happy Birthday, TGIF, 20 days until Christmas,etc. This was pretty simple,too. Cut a piece of cardstock to the height you want, making sure it is 11″ long. Insert into sheet protector, and cut of some of end if needed so you’re not having to fold over too many times. Fold and tape. It is now ready to pin up, and write in new date daily.
Now you can hang it! Just add on your other pieces with the cute and colorful pins.
Your morning board is all ready, and can be easily turned around at the end of the day, or when company is coming!
