cover the laminated sheets with shaving cream, pudding, sand, rice, etc.

You can use an one of the 20 free backgrounds with this fun hands on spelling activity. You can use any sensory material for kids to write in that you like. Some ideas are:
  • shaving cream
  • pudding
  • sand
  • salt
  • rice
  • or any other sensory material you like
Smooth over so you can't see the sheet underneath

Just laminate the free printable [lots of choices below], stick on a cookie sheet or in a small tupperware, and put your sensory substance on top.

Watch spelling magic as a pattern, colors appear to make your words

Now your student can use their fingers for some sensory hands on spelling fun!

Have your child make their letters, spelling words, cvc words, or sight words

My kids are always excited to see what colors, patterns, or pictures are hiding under the sensory spelling! It makes spelling practice fun!
