Is that what signs like these are called? I'm not sure. These single inset puzzle pieces were highly motivating today to spur these cuties on to write long-ish words.
The students chose which signs they wanted to trace and copy. When talking about the "First Aid" sign one student said, "I see that at the doctor." Pretty good connection, I say.
The stylized font on the puzzle pieces messed up one guy; he kept trying to write the letter "R" with a wide square on the top because it looked that way on the puzzle piece.
Here's a photo just for fun--my daughter made this "Skyscraper" ice cream cake (at least 10" tall) for a relative's b-day party yesterday. Easily 1500 cal. per slice! Peanut butter, chocolate, frosting, more peanut butter..
