We Even Read in the Bathroom!

Each week, my class brainstorms words that belong in a word family.  They write them in a word work notebook.  I write them on a cut-out and hang them in the bathroom.  As the year progresses, our bathroom becomes wallpapered with word families.  They might as well be reading while they take care of business!  I write on the shapes with a vis-a-vis marker and hang them up high.  I have had a couple years where some little naughty splashed them with water (I REALLY hope it was water!) and the markers ran.  Most years, the kids just leave them alone.  Sometimes I can hear them reading while they are in there.  I have also used this as a reading station.  I give the kids flashlights and tell them to go read the words in the dark.  They love it and it's great reading practice!
