First Grade Icebox Poetry 🧊

Trying to get my first grader excited about reading…

I used the magnets described previously on the site, and adhered a piece of veneer from cards of wood onto it using the sticky side of the magnet.

It left alot of iron filing residue on the edges, so I am thinking that this would be better in the cricut, however when I tried to load the design in the cricut design space, the program didn’t want to let me clip everything together, too many letters I guess…

If you want to add more words, more lines, etc, it is the font Georgia and 35point. Easy to copy and paste to add lines / dividers.

unintended consequence… rust from the metal debris on the magnet.

Maybe this isn’t a great laser project…

It was a great laser project. The material, however, may need to be changed. Bummer!

Oh no! So sorry to see that happen! :neutral_face:

Maybe a magnetic tray or tin pan of some kind could be used…I still love the idea for the kiddos to learn reading skills.

My plumber gave me a tip to fix our messed up fridge from this failed laser magnet experiment.

Diamond magic.

We fixed up the kitchen and put the old appliances back in, but now it looks good. :slight_smile:
