Fire Drill Letter Sticks
By Shara Lawrence-Weiss
One of the other Paraprofessionals asked, “Miss Shara – what are you doing?” I said, “I collect letter sticks with my kids and then we create words from the letters.” She replied, “I’ll never look at sticks the same way again!” I don’t look at sticks in the same way now, either. Every stick is a potential letter and my kids are doing the same thing. They continually bring sticks to me and say, “Mom look! This one is a letter, too! What word can we make?”
Here are the sticks I found during the fire drill: Y, L, I and Y
Our original art net is plum full now.
We hung a second net on another wall. This one is going to be used for letters and words with art sprinkled in between (not the other way around).
We hung the fire drill letters on the new net:
Until next time!
