M has been working on spelling his name and a few small words such as ‘cat’, ‘dog’ and, more recently, ‘snow’. I thought it might be fun for him to do a tactile word-work activity using snowballs (small, balled-up pieces of a cotton ball).

I put white glue on each letter as M said it’s sound while sticking the snowballs on.

When he had finished building the word ‘snow’ M wanted to make another snowball word, so I had him sound out the word ‘cat’ as I wrote it on the paper.

Here’s M sounding out the words, and then spelling them out loud

This would be an easy center for the classroom (I would opt to use gluestick to make it less messy in that case) during a winter theme.
