Gumball Machine Word Work (freebie)

I saw this idea over at Shari Sloane's site, Kidscount1234.  I changed mine a bit because I prefer my word work sheets to have little to no extra wording and I wanted to have some extra spaces for them to write in.

Basically put whatever words you want on the decorative gems like you can buy at the Dollar Tree.  Put them in a gumball machine.  The students get a 'gumball' out and write the word on their sheet.

I'm so anxious to see the gumball machine word work. But, on the site it shows that the webpage can't be displayed. Is anybody else having this issue? Thanks for sharing.

It is sooo funny that you posted this today! A couple of days ago, I had the same idea about the using the gumball machine, but I was looking for a printable to go with it. I did create one, but yours is cuter. Check mine out on my blog:

It wasn't working for me either, but then I clicked on the link that said "go back to previous page" and it showed up for me. So, if anyone else has the problem where they can't see it, try that :) This is such a cute idea, now I just have to go find a gumball machine lol!
