K is in first grade and has been having a little bit of trouble with proper spacing when she's writing her daily sentences.
I created this "Space Girl" stick for her to place after each word to ensure that she is spacing properly. The craft stick I used is a fairly large one. I'm going to have her use this for a few weeks until she's getting the concept, then I'll make a thinner stick. This isn't a new concept, I've seen teachers use it in the past. I knew K would love the illustration and I was right, it is right up her alley!
I found a clip art astronaut girl online, shrunk it down, printed it, laminated it, and glued it to the craft stick. Super simple!
It's working well so far and she thinks it is awesome.
