A FUN WAY TO PRACTICE WRITING!

Sand Pan Writing

This is a wonderful project for children who write their letters backwards. This is also wonderful for children with ADHD and Autism. Enjoy!

Preparation and Materials:

Get a small shallow box (exp. shirt box, large pyrex). Tape shut any openings or corners. Pour in clean sand. (You can purchase at you local Home Depot)

Directions:

I've made you a miniature sand box. The purpose of this sand tray is to give you a place to practice your reading and spelling words. Just write them in the sand.
For fun, you can have your children write them with their eyes close.

Options:

A great variation to this project is to get a piece of fine sand paper. Write the letter or word they are working on. Have the child trace the letter/word with their finger.
