    This is a great site. I can totally relate to the need to have many ways to do a task such as sight word development. I am new to the younger grade after years at grade 6 and find it important to slow down my pace and find a variety of ways to do these critical tasks. Thanks

    This could be a daily breakfast topic at my house! I am going to do this with my 4 and 6 year old daughters. It will be interesting to see how the answers to that question change over time. (my answers and my 2 daughters' answers)

Great idea! When students are at lunch the "Punctuation Super Heroes" sneak in and leave Skittles on correct punctuation. Very motivating.

  • Donna Herman
    Donna Herman

    I'm a high school special education teacher and what I love about this is the visual shows students what punctuation might look like and the need for it. Kids who struggle with reading, many times, do not recognize punctuation-nbow they will! Fun activity! Thanks for sharing.

  • Angelo Fernando

    Let's not get too persnickety about the missed punctuation here. Her idea is a work in progress. I'm not in favor of rewards, and certainly not edible ones. But the surprise element in the core idea here.

    Wow! A lot of you are extremely negative. How about the cardinal rule, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all. Every teaching style is different.

    reminds me of learning "oo" with Cheerios and also using hole punch "dots" as periods.

    Darlene, agreed! I will be using my fuzzies as a reward for this when we return to school in January! My students turn in their fuzzies at the end of each week for non material rewards. Great motivator for 7 and 8 year olds.

    For high school students, you could add another stick for each color with the formula used in solving angle or side measurements.
