Sand Spelling Words
Winter is still here in PA, but I have a boy that LOVES dirt and sand. I was trying to think of ways to make spelling word practice fun for Garrett. So the other night I grabbed a cookie sheet, a small bag of sand that I had left over from another project and his spelling words. We put the sand on the tray and he spread it out evenly then when I gave him a spelling word , he used his finger and then an unsharpened pencil to write and then spelled it out loud. That makes it practice times 2!
It was so simple and when he was done with his spelling words, he was allowed to play in the sand with his tractors for a while- which for him equaled a bonus!
