What you will need: candles, watercolors, and paper (cardstock or watercolor paper is best). I love the little floating candles. They are so easy to grip.
MYSTERY SPECIAL HELPER
Who is the Special Helper today?
Prepare by writing the name of the special helper on a card. Slowly reveal the special helper by brushing paint over each letter, one by one. Have the children guess who it is with just a few letters revealed!
MYSTERY CVC WORD
What is our word today?
Prepare the card by writing the word with a candle.
Slowly reveal each letter, having the children sound it out.
Where are we going today?
Prepare by writing the place you will visit on a card.
Slowly reveal where you are going with watercolor paint.
The timeless way to use this technique! This wonderful teacher suggested that older students could write messages to each other. Love it!
