Kindergartners, Sight Words, and....SHAVING CREAM?!

If your child came home smelling like a barber shop last week, it is probably because of all of the 'lathering up' we did in our classroom!  As a special end of the year treat, we sprayed globs of shaving cream on the tables and used our fingers to write sight words into the sudsy concoctions.  The looks on the students' faces were priceless when they saw me start to spray the cream on their tables!  What they didn't know is that the 'messy' activity was simultaneously helping us to clean the furniture!  Naturally, we learned that the shaving cream had many other uses than for shaving and writing words, and we quickly discovered all of its other functions and places it could be used :)  I'm not sure if they had more fun exploring, or if I had more fun watching...
