PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

26 weeks of �Pokey Pin� centers that students love to do while exercising their hand muscles and learning their alphabet letters at the same time. These are independent centers that children can do on their own while you lead small groups.
The only materials needed are a push pin for each student and these papers stapled to a piece of construction paper and you will have 26 weeks worth of ready-to-go literacy centers.
Directions: Put a staple at the top mid center and bottom mid center with the alphabet page on the top. Cut in half and you will have two sets. This must be done on a rug or carpet squares so that the push pin will go through the papers and create a pin hole.
Students will poke the push pins along the black lines of the upper and lower case letter as well as the simple black lined picture that has the corresponding letter�s sound. Upon completion, students remove the white paper to reveal the dotted picture ready to hang on a window to let the light shine through. Children find this activity very relaxing and enjoyable and find the end results magical!

Pokey Pins is our number 1 requested station when I give my class the choice. The OT who visits us LOVES to see us using them. I put a styrofoam tray from fruit or vegetables underneath and it works perfectly. Kids love to do this so much that they "poke" their name on the papers when they're done!

On  October 17, 2012,  Buyer asked:
On the back to school freebie I also had problems. Letters are on top of one another, the parent letter is just jibberish. Not sure what to do to fix that and the download that I paid for. Can you help me?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 17, 2012Mrs Miners Monkey Business answered:
That is so strange...wondering if you have a mac and if so, you could try the tutorial on the my blog http://mrsminersmonkeybusiness.com -- under the FAQ tab. That has helped lots of people who have had printing problems from their mac. Otherwise, we are told to direct our customers with problems like this to the TpT tech crew. I can try sending you the pokey pin directly from my email if you leave your email address, but I don't think that will fix the problem...it might have something to do with needing an updated version of Adobe?? Drop me your email and I can send you the Pokey Pin kit if you want to try that! Good luck!

Hi There! I've gotten several of your pokey pin sets. I just love them. But...i'm still getting organized.....is the word "down" among them or should I make one? I can't remember if you used words from your reading series or from Dolch or Fry list. Sorry I have to ask. I have MOST of your things 3 hole punched & put together, but not totally. It'd save me time from looking if I just knew. thanks!

On  February 17, 2012Mrs Miners Monkey Business answered:
No, down is not a word that I have in any of my sets. I am wondering if I should do another set with more..thanks for checking in!
