El Cheapo Letter Tiles
I have seen a number of mommies in the blog world using these letter tiles with their children. Many have said they picked them up at Walmart years ago and that Walmart no longer carries them. I have been trying to get my hands on some and DID come across a box at Staples for about 10.00 and put it on my list of things to buy when I had a little extra cash. Or, to figure out how to make them.
Then I came across this game at a yard sale. Upwards. 50 cents! It even comes with little Scrabble type trays for arranging the letters in. To be fair, Upwards only comes with 64 letter tiles instead of 176, and they are all uppercase. But, for a fraction of the price, they will be a nice test product to see if we really like them and use them in our classroom.
If you arent a big yardsaler, check your thrift. I saw the same game at ours for 2.00 the other day. God Bless!
