In our classroom, we have 4 large windows.  I looked at them and thought they needed to be decorated!  So, I went to Wal-Mart and got the washable window markers.  As a literacy centre, we have been letting the children use the markers to practice drawing people, as well as to practice printing. 

Some days we have the students print their names.  Other days, we have the students create lists of our sight words from our word wall.  There are also days were they can write a story and draw a picture.

We have this as a centre every other week so the children’s work can be displayed for a week before we begin with a clean slate again.

    This is a great idea! I have some windows beside my dramatic play centre and this would be an interesting addition. Thanks for sharing!
