This is a great center activity for younger students to help them with their spelling, sight words, motor skills, and handwriting. I would use this as an activity center and have students work on sight words and/or spelling words.
Work on Writing. Samples of what students can work on include: Letter writing List making Story writing Start a Topic book (a book all about topic of student's choice) Comic strips Card making. All materials available for students at one location.
Phonic Baskets Sorting Activity (from The Imagination Tree). Take a few boxes or baskets, write a letter on a piece of paper and gather many different items that begin with the letter. Have the student put the items in the corrected basket/ boxes.
spelling For this spelling activity the teacher writes a word on the chalkboard and the students write over it with a paint brush and water. This helps the students get familiar with spelling words and helps them practice writing them.
