I like this. I'll use it by having my 2nd graders write "new" words they discover in reading. They must also use the dictionary to provide a definition.

From Teacher Tipster....I found a use for bubblewrap! I wrote my students' sight words on the flat part of the bubblewrap and when they read the word correctly, they got to pop the bubble! I teach special needs kids so this activity had a dual purpose. It was sight word recognition and an occupational therapy/finger strengthening activity. They LOVED it! You could do letter recognition, number recognition, math facts, etc.
