glitter high frequency words

I’m always on the lookout for fun ideas for practicing writing especially practicing handwriting or high frequency words. We have often used sand to write in and that is fun – but there is one thing which is better – glitter. Ok it’s messy. Very messy! The glitter will not stay in the tray, but it’s so much more fun than just writing out spelling words, or using a pencil to practice handwriting. Anyway all you need is a shallow tray, we just used an old painting tray. The lid of a plastic box or a wide plate would also work. Add lots of glitter. We also used star-shaped post it notes and a whiteboard and pen, but these aren’t necessary.
