Paint Sample Word Rings

When school ended last  month I gave myself a challenge to come up with as many inventive uses for cheap or free items.  Today I came up with a nifty way to use those paint samples which the manufacturer has so kindly perforated with perfect little circles:

Word Rings!

I'm not sure if I'll put these in the Literacy Center or make some more sets so each table group can have their own set.  Either way, these are portable and much more hands on than our wall mounted word wall.  Paint samples are pretty sturdy, so they should last at least one year of use.
I wrote sight words on the cards and fastened them with a book ring.
Color words written on "that" color paint sample.


  1. Thanks! Now all I need to do is to come up with a use for all of those little circles...
