Use Elmer's Glue and Shaving cream. Mix them together in equal parts. You can add food coloring to get the desired color. This mixture will dry giving a 3D puffy look. Apply the mixture to a heavy paper like cardstock or construction paper. It makes for great art projects in the classroom. Adding color allows it to be used for many projects.

Here are a few highlights...
There are 3 main purposes for using the ball chairs and incorporating movement into the classroom:
Before you begin writing, think or imagine a time you watched or participated in a parade.
Now tell a story about your experience with a parade.
Brainstorming: In the parade: fell off the float, hit the float in front of you, lost control of your horse, tangled up in Christmas lights, etc…
When "good or great" pops into students' heads, tell them to choose a better word. Remind students to never use the same "great" word twice in the same writing piece or it will diminish the wow of the word!
