Bright Ideas All Eyes on Reading Pointers

I love to use reading pointers in my classroom.  I have large ones to use during large group activities and small ones to use during small group lessons.  I have found that using "special" pointers helps my kids to focus, stay on track and not lose their place when reading.   I had seen some cute eyeball pointers on Pinteret and thought I could make my own, so I did.


I gather some basic crafty supplies: 
  • popsicle sticks,
  • wiggly eyes
  • pipe cleaners
  • wash tape
  • hot glue gunwiggly eye reading pointers, time 4 kindergarten, kindergarten pointers, bright ideas blog hopI measured the popsicle stick to the wash tape, cut then peeled off the backing and smoothed the tape over the stick.

Flip it over and glue the eyeball to the top.  Pinch lightly until glue dries.

I then glued the large wiggly eye to the backside.
