Little ones love all things gooey.
I love tactile letter practice.
Put them together and you get hair gel letters. So easy.
I got all my supplies from the Dollar Store and paired the center with letter cards that match my classroom decor because I am OCD like that.
All you need is a bottle or two or hair gel (I chose blue because it also matches my classroom decor - so annoying right?), large plastic bags, and letter flash cards.
Open the bag, and squeeze enough hair gel in the cover the size of the card that you are going to use. Zipper the bag closed - because we all know what will happen if its not.
Then place one of the flash cards on the table and put the bag over the flash card. Smooth out the gel so it covers the card.
Then trace! My kiddos love the feel of the gel moving under their fingers, and work spaces can stay clean!
When you are done tracing, switch cards and play again! Chevron letter cards are here for FREE!
If you are like me and like to have your kiddos use response sheets in your center, print off these babies and put in a clear write and wipe pocket or let each kiddos choose her/his own.
Besides gel, we also use shaving cream or soap in these bags. What do you like to do tactile letter practice with?
