I use pop sticks for lots of things in the classroom, but here is a quick and easy way to use them at the playdough table to help children recognise their names.
I have used two different sized pop sticks, large and small.
I wrote the children's names on the small pop sticks and they made cakes and used them as birthday candles. The children had fun finding their name, their friends names and singing happy birthday!!
I wrote a different group of children's names on the large pop sticks and encouraged them to make lolly pops, ice-creams and cakes.
