Itty Bitty Word Books (Free Download)

A few weeks ago, I shared my Michael's Create to Educate project called "Itty Bitty Word Books".  They have been A HIT with my students, and so I wanted to come back and share my downloadable file in case you wanted to use them in your classroom, too!

In case you missed that post, here's a little refresher:

I bought 4 mini photo albums (by Recollections brand) at Michaels.  I printed the pictures on card stock and added them to each album--I divided mine up by season:  fall, winter, spring, and summer.  I keep them on my writing resource table, near the paper and other word helpers.  When the kids need to look up how to spell a seasonal word, they grab one of the itty bitty books, and look it up-- like a little picture dictionary.

I LOVE them already.  My students use them DAILY for spelling help.  Also, when they are flipping through and looking at the pictures, they are inspired to create stories!  One little girl told me that she wasn't planning on writing about the beach that day, but she saw a picture of the ocean and it reminded her of her family vacation this summer.

These are so cute! I'm excited for my kiddos to use these at the writing table. I don't know if this was on purpose or not, but there aren't any Valentine's day words under winter like the header says there should be. Thank you so much for this freebie!
