Creative way to make printing practice fun


I am always looking for creative ways to make printing practice fun for kids.  I truly believe it is a skill that needs to be taught and practiced, so whenever I can I try to change it up so that it is not just paper and pencil tasks.  The kids tend to be more engaged and practice longer when it is not with a pencil.  My printing bags are used for just this purpose and my students love to use them.  Not to mention they are super easy to make.

Paint filled printing bags to practice sight words and spelling


Materials you will need:
  • Resealable bag (I used Ziplock brand)
  • Strong Packing tape or Duct tape
  • Paint or hair gel
  • Q-tips (optional)
To make the printing bags, I fill resealable baggies with paint or hair gel, usually just a couple squirts worth.  Then I tape the top closed so the kids can not open the bags (open bags=big mess).  The bags are then ready to use.   Kids can use Q-tips or their fingers to draw on top of the bag.  I like using the Q-tips because it helps build up those fine motor muscles as well.

I use these bags all the time with my class, especially during guided reading sessions or center activities.  It's something I can pull out quick and the kids love them.  We use them to practice pre-printing shapes, letters, sight words, spelling words you name it!

    1. Yep just paint! But you can add glitter if you'd like. I have also used hair gel too and it works as well, just make sure to use a darker color.

  8. so you use paint inside the bag and then do you use paint on the qtip for the outside?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes you put paint inside the bag but then you can use a dry q-tip or your finger to draw on the outside of the bag. This way leaves no mess as you aren't actually touching any paint.

    1. You can use whatever size bag you want, I usually just use the sandwich size ones, but I have used x-large bags with some of my special needs students as they enjoy moving the paint around the bag. With a sandwich sized bag I just squirt in a couple squirts of paint probably about 3 or 4 tablespoons worth.

  33. Google Ads are the most effective way to get your message in front of potential customers.
    You can reach people who are actively searching for what you offer,
    and they’ll be more likely to act on it because they’re already interested in buying.
    Plus, with AdWords, you only pay when someone clicks on your ad.
    That means that every click is a qualified lead—and that makes them even more valuable than offline leads.
    With PPC ads, businesses of all sizes can compete against larger companies by bidding lower prices for keywords
    or phrases relevant to their products or services while still getting maximum exposure online.
    Additionally, these ads allow advertisers to target specific audiences based on location and
    interests so that their advertisements show up only where they want them to be seen - no matter
    how small or big the company may be! This allows smaller businesses with less capital at
    their disposal an opportunity compete against bigger brands without having any disadvantages due to budget constraints.
    They also have access into Google Analytics which provides detailed information about each campaign's
    performance such as number of clicks per day/week/month along with other useful metrics like bounce rate and time spent on site etc.,
    allowing marketers optimize campaigns accordingly over time resulting in increased ROI (return-on-investment).
    All this combined makes PPC advertising one of the best ways for businesses large and small alike gain maximum exposure online today

They write down the best and responsive title for the topic, and then they move on to the introduction and body of the thesis. If required these professional thesis writers add on data analytics and other information to make the thesis look well researched. And at the end, they write down the abstract of the whole thesis, to convey a summarized idea of the thesis to the reader. This is how the whole process of writing a well-curated and researched thesis is offered by paper writing helpers.
