October Gooey Gluey Words

Spelling is semi-exciting when you use paper-pencil but it's lots more fun when you write with glue and string.  These kids in an elementary classroom for students with minimal intellectual disabilities were familiar with these "October" words since their teacher had been talking all month about the words, using a poster which included simple sketches of the objects paired with the words.  We took her lead and did some gooey, gluey writing of our own.

All you need is wax paper, scrap paper for writing the underlying "shadow" words, washable white glue, scissors and yarn.

If your student has difficulty figuring out where to cut, use a permanent marker to outline the word.
Be sure to display the students' work where everyone will see it many times each day.
