Here's a simple idea for using LEGO blocks to count. Students move around the board adding or subtracting blocks from their tower. At the end of the game, players count how many they have and the player with the most wins! (They can also compare towers by length.)

30 ways to promote fine motor skills (Montessori!)
Sight Words, Idea, Fine Motors Skills, Letters Recognition, Site Words, Kids, Spelling Words, Clothing Pin, Clothespins
Teaching spelling words (or sight words) using clothes pins
Spelling Pin #1.Spelling Clothes Pin Words. Pinned to be used with younger kids, it's very inexpensive and good for multiple areas. Teacher prepares a bin full of clothespins labeled with letters. Students must match the letter to their sight or spelling word labeled on the card. To work on writing, spelling, and recognition, the students could create the word cards themselves, or the teacher could create them. Also works with fine motor skills.
"Word Recognition #2 This is a good activity for students to work on their site words with. The cards have the written word and a picture of the word on it. As students read the word they place the clothespin over the corresponding letter. This allows for three different ways to practice one *sight word. This could be used in both a center and individual work with a student who may be struggling."
Fine motor strengthening, letter recognition and spelling in one easy to make activity. I like this idea, but I will just have laminated pics and the kids can attach the pins to spell. Also use the smaller clothes pins.
Identifying letters with clothespins for kids to support letter recognition and promote fine motor skills

Tattle Monster-- kids write down "non-emergency" tattles and place them in the tattle monster's mouth. At the end of the day, they may decide if the tattle is still worth bringing to me. LOVE it! I've made these monsters out of Kleenex boxes, Pop Tart boxes, etc-- kids loved it! Each student could possible have their own tattle monster attached to back of their chair or side of their desk?
Monster Valentine Box ~ Originally designed as a tattle monster box where kids write down their “tattle” and feed it to the monster instead of tattling to mom. But, I think it would be a super cool Valentine box www.tipjunkie.com...
Cute idea :) DYI Tattle Monster - Mariah over at Giggles Galore had been having trouble with her kids tattling all the time. Instead of working things out together, they would constantly come to a parent and try to enlist his or her help. So Mariah realized she needed a solution that would engage the kids and speak to their need to be heard. She developed this brilliant Tattle Monster, affectionately named Murray. With an old tissue box and a little bit of crafting, Mariah created this frien...

Raining Rainbows Experiment materials: A glass container Water Shaving cream food coloring how to: 1. Fill the glass container about 2/3's full. 2. Next, add a layer of shaving cream. Spread it out so it covers the water's surface. 3. Then, drop food coloring on top of the shaving cream. "The shaving foam floats on the water but the colored water will gradually soak through because it is denser than the shaving foam... when it does, it looks like it's raining rainbows!"

Magnetic Letter Boggle-duh! Great idea for morning work!
Love this idea. I've been thinking about how to play Boggle with the whole class, maybe using a white board, but old school is the best way. I'll be looking for magnetic letters.Boggle! Obviously this could be done with a printout or marker, but I just adore the use of magnet letters. It would make a great center, whole group or choice time activity.
Word Work Idea: Use magnetic letters and create a Boggle game station.
Boggle board with magnetic letters. Love the idea of boggle board for early finishers. This one is part of a focus wall. Worksheet on separate pin.
