    I am tutoring a student after school, so I need a portable solution for this.
    We are using the Making Words program as part of our plan. I am seeing really good progress with this. The problem is, I'm having trouble keeping track of the letter "tiles" (laminated letters) and it takes way too long to pull out the letters I need.

    Does anyone have a good solution for this that costs less than $5? Preferrably less.

    Zip lock bags? They do wonders for me.

    I agree-I used a 25 compartment tackle box for my letter magnets for years. I combined y and z since we didnt use z often so we only needed 2 max. Amazon has a million of them.

    I use a ziploc bag currently, but I'm not going to use a single ziploc bag for each letter.

    It's a big project, but other teachers in my grade took folders and velcro tape. Each child has a folder with letters they can pull right out. I've yet to invest the time/have parents invest the time, but they speak nothing but positive of the system.

    Wow, that does sound like a big project. Color me grateful to deal with upper grades. Hats off to those who do this - I'm sure that the rewards are many.

    This would be really nice if I could figure out how to make something like a study carrol with the letters on the other side. She's really distractable and I have to tutor her in a very crowded library.
