Hi! It's Carolyn from Kindergarten: Holding Hands and Sticking Together. Happy December!
Here are a couple of my favorite candy cane ideas- with a little literacy sprinkled in- that I want to share with you today.
I cut out candy cane shapes, outlined them, and wrote red sight words in every other space. I wrote white crayon sight words in the white spaces. The children had to read the red word, then paint the white section with red watercolor. This was actually a really good activity for following directions, too. The kids did great!
We also made our other sight word candy canes this week!
After they glue on the strips, I turn the candy cane over and help the children trim the edges.
When they finish this center, they get a mini candy cane to take home and eat as they read their candy cane words to a grown up.
Here is a copy of the sight word sheet I used and the recording sheet. Just click on the picture if you would like a copy.
Here is a fun video of Santa making candy canes!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a WONDERFUL weekend!
