Maybe I can use my old stamps with Playdoh instead of this nasty stamp pad .Fun way to practice making words! You could also give students a limited number of letters and a focus vowel, then see how many rhyming CVC words they could make!
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.
I love this writing center. Duplicate traditional school this center appeals to me--or maybe it's appealing to the teacher in me! It just makes me want to sit down and write, and I think it would do the same for my future kids!
