Sandbox Spelling - Improvement in a Small Box!

Here is my latest love - a "Spelling Sandbox"!! I think you can figure out how to make it - feel free to email me with questions, but I'll go through the steps anyway! LOL!)

Fun, kinesthetic learning for students

Once upon a time, I saw and loved (and used successfully!) this idea from Pinterest. The original Pin was very simple from Kindergarten is Crazy Blog. Here is her pin:

I like the idea so much, that I created five Spelling Sandboxes and my students used them (and fought over them) several times a week during word work time.

They are very simple to make, inexpensive, and you get a big bang for your buck!

First, you need sand! I got these bags from a local plant shop, but bags of sand are available from craft stores and home improvement stores.

Next, you need a pencil box - this one was less than $1.00 at Walmart! Get them during the Back to School sales!

All of my students LOVED this station and spelling work became much more fun and less of a chore. And once they are made - you have them for years to come!

What are your spelling hints, tips, and tricks?
