The Sticky Board is in the classroom’s Library. This month’s theme is Space and I have added shapes to help students explore the theme. It would be expected to have stars, circles and crescents. I also added spaceships, astronauts and a sun shape. Students spend time together or alone playing with the Sticky Board. It is a place use imagination, act out stories, or try to represent things they know about our universe.
The board itself is a recycled dry erase board that has become dull. I tape down a piece of contact paper, sticky side out, and it has a new use! Its sensory experience is quite different from the felt board or the magnetic board. Its stickiness makes it easier to have 3-D props. It is also a story starter for dictation. Students enjoy having pictures taken of their boards and adding them to their stories about Space.
