Articulation Cans- A Review!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Today I am reviewing (mostly through pictures) an amazing product by,

A GREAT BUY!
Cheap for what you get! 100's and 100's of words! 
I don't even know how many words because I lost track after a box of 200 Popsicle sticks, plus 3 more bags of 75! I still have words left to do! I need to make a craft store run now!  




Easy to make
 If you want to make them the easy way, print, cut and glue. 
I wanted to get fancy so I used a Xyron Creative Machine (there are many types of these machines!) 
I laminated the pages and labels then ran them through again using the adhesive backing 
Note: I had some trouble with the adhesive sticking to the laminate; so I ripped the back half of the laminate off and ran them through the machine with adhesive. It worked like a charm!

Multiple Uses 
Mia explains how she uses the sticks and even provides a few worksheets! I can't wait to use these with the students who are sick and tired of using articulation cards. I think that they will be great for the younger students I work with! Can someone say preschool!?

This is something you will actually use, use and USE! Seriously, think of all the possibilities! Like you can even use these for EET, vocabulary practice, Wh questions..or story telling! Have students pick out 3 and make up a story! 

 I wanted to make sure I remembered all the words so I wrote them on the back.
I will be putting these in my carrying cart to do hallway artic therapy! Also using for games, drill, and so much more!

The best part is the part where you get to personalize them! 
I found my "cans" (actually pencil holders) at the Dollar Tree. 
I have heard word that Target may still have some in their Dollar Spot section. 
Find a pretty paper that you like (or not if your containers are already pretty!) I found my paper in the scrapbook section of Michael's.
I LOVE getting crafty, cutting, laminating and sticking! Seriously, the perfect excuse to put your feet up, craft and watch tv for a good purpose!

GIVEAWAY TIME
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Disclaimer: I am in no way associated with Xyron, I purchased the machine with my own money! I also paid for Mia's products and LOVE them which is why I wanted to share the awesomeness.
Enjoy!!
