I teach preschool two days a week and I love it! The kids are like little sponges and we have so much fun learning about all kinds of things. We focus on a different letter of the alphabet each week and we always incorporate a fun craft to go along with it. For letter “B” we made suncatcher letter B butterflies. All you need is black construction paper, cut up tissue paper in various colors and clear contact paper. Just cut out the letter B as well as circles from the contact paper big enough to cover the openings in the B. Cover the FRONT of the B openings first. The sticky part should face the back of the letter. Let the child cover the sticky parts with the tissue paper. Once they are done, cover the back of the B openings with contact paper so that the tissue paper is encased between the two sheets. Cut out a small circle with two antennae and have the child glue it to the top left of the B shape. There you have it, an easy, fun craft that looks great taped to a window!
To make it stand out and reinforce the lesson, we used Chalk Ink Markers to write “B” is for Butterfly on the window.
These great markers can be used on chalkboards, glass and even metal. Our class is called the dinosaurs and we have a large metal tray that the kids use with alphabet and number magnets. We can write different words and numbers on the tray with the Chalk Ink markers and then have the kids match up the letters with the magnet versions.
Chalk Ink works like a paint pen but has the appearance of chalk, but with no dust! They come in a ton of different colors so there’s one for every project.
There is no smearing once the writing dries and it wipes off with just water. I have found so many uses for them in the classroom and at home. We’ll be studying pumpkins next month so the orange pen will get a lot of use!
Are you a crafty person? How would you use these awesome markers from Chalk Ink?
