Hi everyone! It is Melissa from Inspire Me, ASAP and I am here to share a few ideas about how I use Popsicle sticks in my third grade classroom.
First idea- monster grins!
I love to use these during my monster multiplication unit of study! As my students master their math facts, they become official monsters of multiplication!! I take a picture of the students holding the monster grin and send that home to the parents, with a label "I am a monster of multiplication!"
Idea 2: Persuasive Paddles
I also love to use these Popsicle stick faces as part of a formative assessment. The students can easily "flash" me their face as I ask questions to review or math lesson.
Idea 3: I "Mustache" You a Question
I love to glue the mustache clip art to a Popsicle stick and use them with a variety of different reading, writing, and math lessons. This picture shows how I use the mustaches for a back to school, getting to know you activity.
The students then write what they learned about their new friend and I take all responses to compile into a class book. The students loves to take their book home as a fun little keep sake from their friends.

The first 2 readers that leaves a comment about their favorite use for Popsicle sticks will get one of these files (your choice) sent to their email. Don't forget to leave your email address!
Take care, my friends!
