I know what you are thinking. Sticky hands, really? Seriously? Yes, it’s true! Those sticky hands on a rubbery string that kids adore can be a valuable learning tool. Here is how:
- In a small group, give each child a sticky hand.
- Lay some laminated task cards on the floor or on a table face down. Ideally, these should be ones that can be answered with a short, verbal answer.
- Children take turns “casting” their sticky hands at the cards. When a child gets a card he or she uses the hand to lift it off the table. He or she reads the card out loud and then answers the question.
