Print in black background for holiday fun OR white to save ink! A big one on one page or 2 small ones on one page! New, Improved Pokey Pin Centers that students love to do while exercising their hand muscles for fine motor coordination and learning their vowel sounds at the same time. These are independent centers that children can do on their own while you lead small groups. There are 4 choices for easy differentiation: just pictures, pictures with beginning letter, pictures with word, and then pictures with a simple sentence for each picture.
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 ready-to-go literacy centers.
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.
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!
