I post a different picture each week and students write one asking and one telling sentence about the picture. The goal is to make them “sparkle” by adding details and checking for capitalization, punctuation, and spelling. Students write the sentence in pencil first and after proofreading are allowed to make it “sparkle” by tracing over it with the gel and glitter pens.

Catching Snowflakes Art Project for Kids.

Each child got a list, clip board, pencil and one flash card (on a headband). Then the students roamed around the room reading sight words. They drew a line from their peer's name to the sight word they read off their peer's forehead. Such a cute idea.
