Repurposing old hard covered books. Not only repurposing them, but actually going to a second hand store to purchase a couple of old hard covered books with the intention to RIP ALL the pages out - never to even read. Yep. I really did that.
Here's the big one I got. There was really nothing wrong with the book.
But I ripped out all the pages anyway. LOL
While I was out I also picked up a packet of these:
And when I came home I went through my paper stash and pulled these out.
Then I went to work. I covered the front of the book with my pretty paper.
Then used my guillotine to cut my overhead transparencies to make POCKETS on top.
Yep, I was making a POCKET chart. Here's what can fit in it - the cards are 6 x 4 so that gives a bit of an indication as to what size cards will fit.
And it stands up~!! Admittedly it isn't as big as the ones you can get for classrooms, but I think it shall work awesome for us here at home.
This is my basic pocket chart - and how I made it. Now to make ones that will do a calendar, other bits and pieces, and my sentence maker.
Thanks for visiting~!! :o)
