This activity is perfect for the first day of school! We discuss how first graders should sound and should not sound in the hallway! I drop marshmallows on the floor and I tell them that this is exactly how we should we sound in the hallway...no one should hear us coming!
We read the poem together a few times and then I give them a copy of the poetry page for them to fill in the blanks with the missing words. Then, they can glue 5 marshmallows on to the toes. Throughout the year, I always remind them to use marshmallow toes in the hallway! :)
