Spelling practice- beads and pipe cleaners. This would be good word work for sight words too. Or could hot glue pictures to end of pipe cleaners and have students spell the words for each picture using the beads.
This activity helps kids learn sight words while also developing fine motor skills. To increase the level of complexity, challenge kids to build sentences out of these words! (Idea from Kinder Journey.) What wonderful way to work on sight words!
Place inside an envelope with one end cut off. Gradually pull to reveal one letter at a time. This is a great way to help kids blend sounds gradually rather than feeling overwhelmed and giving up or guessing the word.
