It’s Faith here again from Kindergarten Faith. Teachers are always looking for ways in which their classroom supplies can stretch a little further or serve a dual purpose. Yep, that’s me!! I have seen those really cute little spacer guys that help kiddos with their writing and make the perfect space, but of course I multi-task, multi-purpose, multi-anything really. So……I invented the Tracer-Spacer. Okay, I really didn’t invent the pen, but maybe the word. Heheheheh
At the beginning of our handwriting sentence writing process, we do a lot of tracing and copying to work on letter placement and spacing. Our Tracer-Spacer comes in very handy. We trace the sentence and then flip the pen around for a sentence spacer when we write.
The kids love the fact that they can pick a different color every time they trace, and I love it because it is so fun to say!! Say it one time to them and it sticks. Think about your classroom. What else could serve a duel purpose? How could you reuse something in your room? Let us know!!
See you next month!!
