Squishy Bag - A tactile/multisensory approach to pre-writing and writing skills. Things you need - Gallon size Ziploc bag, glitter (optional), food coloring, hair gel (dollar store) I like this better than paint.
Video-This beautifully illustrated picture book conveys a powerful message about how little acts of love and appreciation affect the well being of others, and also add to our own happiness and abundance. Great read for building a classroom community!
This activity helps kids learn sight words while also developing fine motor skills. To increase the level of complexity, challenge kids to build sentences out of these words! (Idea from Kinder Journey.) What wonderful way to work on sight words!
