I like this - I would probably make the words velcro so students could take them to their seat for correct spelling. No more "said" Here's a way to display the various words to use instead of said. Clever idea for writing class!
MIGHT USE THIS IDEA - Very Hungry Caterpillar Mobile. Hang lanterns red, 6 in two shades of green) with different lengths of fishing line. Use pipe cleaners for antennae, and construction paper for eyes and nose. Very cool in a children's library space.
