1st GRADE iPHONE FREEBIE

I really LOVE teacher tipster.com. His quirkiness always has me giggling... just like my first graders. He has a download on his site for some *Blackberry* style phones for the kids to pretend text their spelling words on.

I sooo enjoy the idea, and decided to update it a bit by making First Grade iPhones. The kids use Vis-A-Vis or Expos on the laminated card stock *phones* to write 5 of their spelling/sight/vocab {whatever} words and then practice *texting* those words. The kids are so into phones, texting and everything else involved with this technology - what a hit!

So, after making lots of boxes (Oh My... the letter buttons took patience - this was a time consuming little project!) I'm really happy with the final product and my kiddos LOVE THEM!

{Get your copy at TpT }
The download is now a generic version - not grade level specific - so ANY classroom can use them! 

ENJOY!! 
I am over-the-moon thrilled that these have been so popular. 
If you grab a copy, please leave a comment.
I would really appreciate and LoVe 
if you followed my blog and stores, too! 
THANKS :D
