Shaving Cream Writing

Last week we started practicing the Kindergarten High Frequency words for homework.  Everyday before dismissal, the students played a few games on the SMART Board to practice recognizing and writing them. (a, I, see, & like)  On Thursday during reading groups, I put shaving cream on my reading table and called out words for them to write in the shaving cream using their pointer fingers.  I have found this to be an awesome intervention in the past and a great tactile way for them to practice writing their sight words without feeling like it was "work."  It was a little strange to them at first, but all in all they truly enjoyed it and I don't think my table has ever been so clean!  Here are a few pictures of our fun lesson!

Joshua practicing the word "like."


Isaac got excited about shaving cream and it ended up in his and Emily's hair!

The blue group was excited about writing in shaving cream!
