I love this Teaching Tip party hosted by Miss Kindergarten.
In my small groups, I love to do some quick word sorts, writing of high frequency words, or word analysis. Even though I have my white boards, markers, and erasers sitting right next time...it can still take some precious moments to remove those materials. So instead, we just write on the tables. Our firsties get a total kick out of this! They can't believe I am letting them write on the table. It was one of those things I never thought to do before my curious friend, Karen, shared the idea with me. Thank you Karen!
Table and dry erase markers. That is it!
