I know it is still summer, but I am just itching to get back to school! Am I totally crazy? I'm just really looking forward to meeting my new kids, getting back into a routine, etc. And I'm really excited because I have spent a lot of time this summer creating new activities, re-tooling old ones, etc. I recently saw these online and ordered two sets:
They're refillable dot painters! So then naturally I was thinking of how to use them in my classroom. And I came up with this:The kids can use the dot painters to mark where they see each letter, and it makes a trail down to the end. What do you think? I'm pretty proud of it and it was surprisingly easy to make! I've already made ones for m, p and s (the first 3 letters we study). They will be out as one of my literacy centers. You can see it in my Google Docs here. Now I just need some kids to try it out on!!
