I have a lot of teachers stumped about incorportaing Word Work with Daily 5 without being able to share materials due to COVID.  What kind of meaningful activites could K-3 teacher incorporate to keep all students safe?  Thanks for your thougthts and support.  Ruth Benge






Hi Ruth,

Not being able to share supplies does change things! We work to have a small baggie that has a few options for children to keep at their space. Ideas include:

  • Markers for rainbow writing
  • Ghost writing (write in a white crayon and color over with a marker so the word/letter appears)
  • Dry erase marker and board or solo plastic plate to work as a dry erase board, or if their table space works as a dry erase board all they need is the marker
  • small container of playdoh and a golf pencil or golf tee... they can flatten the playdoh and write in it 
  • purposeful printable practice page in a page protector they can use and reuse

These are just a few ideas. I look forward to seeing if anyone else has ideas to share!
