Shaving Cream Spelling

Currently, Sweetie Pea is the only one old enough to have a scheduled spelling list each week.  To add a kinesthetic element to her daily review, I passed out old cookie sheets, squeezed a dollop of shaving cream onto each one, and allowed the kids to use these make-shift "chalk boards" to write out words or pictures.

Sweetie Pea had to use this as a time to practice her week's words.  She was instructed to use her finger as a pencil to write out a word on her list, swipe the board "clean", and write a new word until she had practiced her entire list.

Although Super Boy doesn't have an official list, he was able to practice his phonics skills.  I dictated a simple one-vowel word to him, and he wrote it out phonetically.

The other two Littles enjoyed a bit of free-style time while the older ones worked on their lessons.
