Try this Cut and Paste Book Instead of Color Word Worksheets!

But cutting, unscrambling, and gluing to spell can make a meaningful difference and truly help. Today I’m thrilled to share a simple, but vibrant, booklet to help your students get one step closer to color word mastery for FREE. My students loved this project and I know that yours will too.

Hi, I'm Maria.

I’m a former kindergarten teacher turned work-from-home mom. I still love sharing ideas and resources to make teaching easier, so you can focus on what really matters in the classroom. When I’m not working on the blog, you’ll find me chasing kids around the house with a cold cup of coffee in my hand (some things never change even once you’re out of the classroom!)
