Shaving Cream, Sight Words, and Smiles, Oh My!


This week in Miss Milders' class, students focused on multisensory ways to write sight words that don't follow standard spelling patterns. By engaging their senses of smell, sight, and touch (yes, even on Halloween!), students are more likely to remember these unusual spellings of common words. Students also came up with creative lists of describing words to explain how the shaving cream looked, smelled, felt, and even sounded! (In case you're wondering, the shaving cream makes a "soft, squishing" sound when you play with it.) Next week, Miss Milders' students will continue exploring different ways to remember these common words that you can't always sound out!
