    Is there anything that I can substitute for a Pocket chart? My classroom does not have one, and I haven't been able to order one yet. I wanted the kids to practice their sight words (1st grade) by putting "I see my (picture card)."

    If you have a magnetic surface, laminate the stuff and put a magnet on the back.

    Wal Mart has them for about $10 if you need one quickly. Target might too but I'm not sure.

    Walmart and Target both have the $10 ones here. Another suggestion to hold you over is to just put some sticky tac on the back of your cards- it will come right off when you are ready to put them in a chart.

    You can also try ebay or make one yourself. It's almost worth it to just buy one. Making one takes some time, but I know many people who do it on their own.

    A couple of years ago I bought a CD pocket hanger-thing at Dollar Tree. Yup. $1.00. It's not perfect, but it has worked out well for miscellaneous small uses in the classroom. I especially used it while tutoring Kinders with alphabet flash cards. I had them use the pockets to put them in order.

    Post-It makes sticky sentence strips... how cool is that? You could just stick them on the board or on the wall!

    Use leftover lamination plastic. Cut into long strips. Staple onto tagboard or even cork board. Instant pocket chart.
