Using letter beads and pipe cleaners is more fun than pencil and paper for spelling cvc words. I borrowed these beads from my daughter’s kindergarten classroom. We don’t where they are sold but I think they are awesome! You can make your own letter beads by writing on wooden or plastic beads. (See the November 3, 2014 blog for ideas.)
