My kiddos love using the Scentos markers for spelling practice in Word Work during the Super 6 Differentiated Learning Centers. I have them practice writing their words in pen, pencil Scentos marker and crayon. They would completely balk at writing all of their words 4 times each but love doing this!

This is a favorite activity for my kids so imagine how excited I was to find these at Michaels. It made this old time favorite instantly new and fun again!
My kids loved the new markers so much, they may have spent more time smelling them then writing with them. Yesterday when I was checking on the kids in centers, I asked them if they were working hard or just playing around with the new markers. As they looked up to me and said we are working very hard, I noticed both boys had marker under their noses. I couldn't help but smile and giggle!
Well today I put the Sight Words "Eye" Can Read in the writing center. The kids loved digging into the bucket of eyeball ping pong balls. The Super 6 was going great, everyone was working and it was nice and quiet until the bucket tipped! The ping pong eyeballs went everywhere! (I know this is aging me and many won't remember this, but I thought of Captain Kangaroo! Who else remembers this?)
