You Will Need:
- Plastic Sleeves (You can purchase plastic sleeves here on MissMancy’s Shop or comes included in MissMancy’s Handwriting Starter Kit.)
- Dry Erase Marker (You can purchase dry erase marker here on MissMancy’s Shop or comes included in MissMancy’s Handwriting Starter Kit)
Tricks of the Trade:
Using plastic sleeves is one of my favorite tricks of the trade. It allows me to avoid making so many photocopies (while saving trees:) and kids love to write with dry erase markers. They are more willing to complete worksheets this way!
My Favorite way to use Sleeves:
With Worksheets: Place worksheets in the plastic sleeve, have your child complete with a dry erase marker and reuse!
Mazes: Great for mazes so children can erase easily and try again if they make a mistake.
Tic Tac Toe: Fun reusable way to play Tic Tac Toe word games
Tracing: Write words or letters with a highlighter on white paper, place it in a plastic sleeve and have your child trace letters with a dry erase marker!
Copy Words or practice letters: Write a word or letter and make a box under it for your child to copy.
Sizing: Practice making letters smaller and smaller by drawing different sized boxes on white paper, place in a sleeve and have your child practice!
Motor Coordination: Draw a fun curvy road with a light maker (make lines thick ) and ask your child to trace by staying in the lines the whole time and not getting out of the road. This will work on motor coordination.
