Learning to Write with Flour Trays
- Plastic Trays
- Laminated Letter or Name Cards
These are simply trays of flour. These flour trays are fantastic for a couple of reasons: they satisfy the students’ need for a sensory experience, and the flour is inexpensive and relatively easy to clean up. One can always pick out the students who have been working at this center because they look like that mom in the old Rice Crispies treat commercial! (Does anyone else remember that?)
These are simply trays of flour. Have the students’ names written out as a model. During centers, they can choose their name card and then practice making the letters in the flour. Begin with younger students by working on the upper case letters of their first names, and build from there.

Pre-Printing Practice Cards
Students love this center because they get to use dry erase markers. It’s the little things, right? These pictures are actually from a younger class. They did so well on them!
