Every year as I do my yearly lesson planning in the summer. I always find new ways that our school room area needs to be changed to accommodate the new learning materials that we will be using as my kids get older. This coming school year I plan to do a weekly short study that focuses on the First World War. My son is very interested in this topic, so I was lucky to find these awesome flash cards from Usborne that are jammed pack full of facts just perfect to slightly expand on weekly for a small topic study that will not overwhelm our already packed schedule.

However, after coming up with this topic study idea using these flashcards I wanted to figure out a simple, yet inviting way to keep up the card we are learning about all week long. Then it hit me… use a pool noodle!!!

I found my pool noodle at our local dollar store. Simply trim the pool noodle using scissors or a knife to your desired length. Then, make one straight cut along the top of the pool noodle (this will be the opening for the flashcards to sit in). Finally, simply use two screws to attach it to the location where you want your pool noodle flashcard holder to live with the slit facing up to hold your flashcards.
