Toys That Teach Writing


This little piggyback video brings one of my most popular blog posts to life.  I LOVE using common children's toys during writing workshop.  As with food, kids usually experience a strong connection to the toys, helping them understand and retain the information in the writing lessons.  Come see how I use Mrs. Potato Head, stacking rings, and marbles to teach qualities of good writing.

Then... if you'd like more ideas... click on the related post, Teaching with Toys, to see how I use other toys like puzzles, bubbles, Play-Doh, Slinkys, and more!    

Happy teaching!
