Writing Activity: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

A fun and easy way to throw a little variety into writing. Mixing it up helps with increasing and sustaining engagement.

All you need for this activity is a plate or tray and some salt!

Pour the salt onto the tray and spread it out. You want the spread to be thick enough that the writing shows up, but thin enough that the sand doesn’t pour back into the newly made line. 

You can use this to have students trace or write letters or sight words!

Happy writing!
