Writing with crackers?

November 3, 2010

The First Grader at Last blog is really sweet in general, but I could not resist this particular post from Ms. Cooley.

Years ago I taught 2nd grade with  my dear friend, Erin DiPerna, in Verona, Wisconsin. She used similar tools to teach spelling and writing in her diverse classroom. Students might finger spell words on each others backs, with shaving cream, with letter tiles, or with mini-chalkboards.

In Ms. Cooley’s post, my favorite options are the glow board and the crackers. And I love how she not only uses these tools to differentiate instruction but to teach to different intelligences in the classroom.

Great ideas for parents too!
