Spelling Use a small chalkboard and write the classes sight words. Then use a small eraser and have the students overlap the words written in chalk. Works on their motor skills needed to write the words and practices their spelling.
This is a pretty good idea. Challenge display in my class. Over the week coloured lolly sticks are placed in different areas. When children complete a challenge/task they put a stick in their pot of gold.
Paint Bag Writing: Add some paint to a plastic bag, seal it up & spend the afternoon with your kids drawing designs through the paint. Using a Q-tip instead of your finger to avoid tearing a hole in the bag.
