Later, I plan to create printable PDFs that you can quickly produce and attach to foam board or poster board. I’ll let ya know! In the meantime, here’s a quick bullet list of items and supplies that you can use to create your own prediction board. I found most of the items at Dollar Tree.
ITEMS AND SUPPLIES
- Foam board–I used black, but color is optional.
- A pack of green plastic toy soldiers
- America decoration–Easy to find around July 4th
- School bus–Found in the teacher section at Dollar Tree.
- Foam letter stickers–These don’t have to be foam, but I like the texture.
- Dog leash
- Empty honey bear bottle–washed, of course
- 1 green envelope
- Low-heat hot glue gun
- One or two sheets of scrap booking paper for background behind words–optional
- Washington D.C. sticker or photo
- Firecracker sticker
I tried looking for a toy tire and a small blue bunny, but couldn’t find what I wanted in the time I had. Not necessary, but they would be a nice addition.
IMPORTANT WORDS ON THE BOARD
- foster care
I like the dimension of my board because tangible items make it more interesting and pleasing to the eye. If you want extra dimension under your words, buy two foam boards. Attach your letters to one foam board, then cut out each word. Glue the cut out word to the second foam board that will be your prediction board. I cut out blame, loyal, friend, honor, family, sorrow, and fear from my old board, then glued them on my new board. See the picture below:
If you’re on a time crunch, I will soon have PDFs for you to print and glue. 🙂
