letter stamps – good for practising sight phrases or spelling patterns

magnetic poetry – kids can discover components of speech, make full sentences, or clearly write poetry

story cubes – I’ve college students position three cubes at a time and use the photographs to make a story with a starting, center, and finish.  They love this exercise!

gel pens – After attending a Debbie Diller workshop I feel that a handwriting heart is completely legit throughout language arts time.  The secret to getting kids enthusiastic about a handwriting heart will be summed up in two phrases: gel pens!

letter beads – one other method for kids to apply sight phrases and spelling patterns, I like to have them sequence the letters on pipe stem cleaners

Friends – Beautiful photographs of unlikely animal buddies are paired with rhymes about friendship on this heartwarming guide.

I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More – a hilarious story about a child that turns himself into a canvas and the response he will get from his mom, will be sung to the tune of “It Ain’t Gonna Rain No More.”
