I don't know about your kiddos but mine L.O.V.E. markers!
These are cool. You write with one end then trace over it with the other end and it changes colors.
These are the BEST smelly markers! There are other brands out there too.
My team mate Amanda showed these to me. We will have fun stamping our spelling words in Daily 5 with these.
I bought all mine at Wal-Mart but I found the Mr. Sketch were cheaper on Amazon.com.
I let my kiddos use the 'special' markers for spelling and sight word practice. I made a little sheet to go with it. I made it blank so you can write in your own words before you print it for the kids. Here's a picture.
Have a great day!
