The other day, I told one of my students to close her eyes and hold out a hand with the palm facing up.
I wrote a letter in the palm of her hand and she had to guess the letter.
She soon recognized most letters, and I mental noted this simple activity as a good idea for other classes.
But then we switched roles: I closed my eyes and tried to guess the letters she wrote in my hand.
Nope nope nope not a good idea.
I think she was writing the letter g, but because my hands are so ridiculously ticklish, I collapsed into a pile of giggles before she could finish.
Eventually the students will write words, not just individual letters.
I’m going to ask to be excused from that.
