I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolic's Monthly Monday Made It! I do not have a lot of projects to share this time around like my summer Monday Made Its!
Last night I made Puzzle Boards for my students to use when putting together puzzles. We don't have a free choice time or game time during class, but when we have indoor recess the students are allowed to play board games. I also have puzzles in the classroom, but haven't let the students use them yet because we haven't talked about the "rules", and I knew I wanted to make these boards.
I got the idea from a colleague I used to work with at my previous district. I bought foam poster board from Wal-Mart, it was actually one of the tri-fold science boards because that's all they had. I used white duct tape my hubby had and some shelf liner I had yet to use. Getting the tri-fold board allowed me to make several puzzle boards, small and large, so I'm glad I got it.
|I cut the liner to fit the board|
|I taped the edges with duct tape|
|I also used duct tape on the back|
|Viola! It keeps the puzzle pieces from sliding around|
and gives the students an area to keep all the pieces!
