Its back to school time!
Since we have a kid going into grade 1 and a kid starting kindergarten we made some popsicle stick pointers to follow along with reading and help keep us on track when reading alone.
What you need
Plain popsicle sticks
Make a pink block at one end, followed by a silver or grey block immediately after. This will make the eraser of the pencil.
Using tan or light brown on the other end of the stick draw a triangle to make the point of the pencil. Using a black marker, add a small dot on the very edge make the pencil lead.
Using the tan or light brown marker make a zig zag edge at the bottom of your triangle. This will make it look like the pencil has been sharpened. Then colour in the middle section in yellow.
Grab a book and point to the words as you read.
