What Can You Do With Elastic Waistband Material?

What do you think of this idea?  Great way to make phonemic awareness concrete (and, you've gotta' love using students' names--it works!).  This is simply elastic waistband material (bought at Walmart in the sewing section--cheap), with some cardstock stapled on (the bottom drawings depict student pictures stapled to the left).  Stretch to segment, release to blend...viola!  There are many, many more ideas for easy concrete models in my Name Wall book from Scholastic.  Happy Learning!
