    Here's another idea I wanted to share.  I saw these revamped fly swatters on Kim Adsit's webpage and wanted to make some of my own.  They are a HUGE hit with my students.  "Willy Word" and "Lucy Letter," a.k.a. "Sissy Space-It" are great for pointing out words, letters, and spaces on chart messages and big books.  I made smaller versions for the children to use with regular books using large craft sticks and plastic canvas.

Yes Indeed! You can never have enough pointers! :)

Sound Muncher: Put pictures/flashcards inside when teaching a new letter, for the kids to pull out. Sometimes, I put 3D letters into him and the kids have to put their hands in and guess what letter they can feel. Other times, we "feed" him pictures of words beginning with a particular letter. He has so many uses!

Homemade classroom pointers would make great preschool and elementary teacher gifts!
