Heidi Butkus of Heidi Songs Blog shared on her blog about a cool activity she has her kiddos do with magical words...She uses sight words and watercolor paint to have the words magically appear on a paper...who can resist (pun intended) doing a crayon resist?
I bumped it up a bit by using my High Frequency words and including a worksheet for the kids to complete after they finish their painting...
On a side note...my creative shopping friend showed me these cool mats that are 2 for a dollar at the infamous Dollar Tree. The kids will use these to paint on and hopefully keep the area semi clean. My friend uses them as playdough mats and coloring mats for paints and markers.
