Our Kindergarten Literacy centre became a little messy today…..I brought in a few cans of shaving cream. I bought the unscented kind. As a literacy station, I set up 4 chairs at a table. I had plastic letters as models for the children to see. I had each child put on an art smock so their clothing did not get ruined. I gave each child a medium sized mound of shaving cream (egg-sized) on the table in front of them. Then, I told the children to use their hands to spread it around and then use their fingers to create the letters.
The children loved it! They wrote their names in it too! Next time, I can have them write their sight words in the shaving cream.
