About a week and a half ago, I got an email from SmileMakers. They offered to let me choose any item from their catalog if I would review it on my blog. Well I was just beside myself with excitement!

I wanted to get something that I would use, not just leave it in the box collecting dust. After thinking about it for awhile, I ordered the
Since it is magnetic, I can hang it on my whiteboard. It comes with 3 double-sided write on wipe off cards. there are also a list of ideas to use for classroom management or for reading or math games. I have several learning games that need spinners so I thought the spinner would save a lot of time making different types of spinners. Once I got it out and looked at it, I realized it will work perfect for my sight word graphs. In the past, I have use a large, foam dice covered with paper and every week I would either put another layer of paper on it or cover last week's words with stickers. the write on wipe off card will be sooo much easier, plus the kids will LOVE it! I, also, won't have to worry about a stray dice being thrown a little wildly. ;) I took it up to school with me to take some pictures. My daughter graciously agreed to act as Vanna White. The first few pictures are showing the different cards available.
