Well, I sure do have my productive pants on today!! I'm super excited to have finished a grad school paper AND a couple more Making Words activities!! Have I mentioned how much I LOVE Making Words activities?!?!?! HA! Seriously though, my students can't get enough of these activities!!! They are great for encouraging your sweet kiddos to explore words, letter-sound relationships, and letter patterns!
