'Space Bar' Stick

Need Help Teaching When To Space in a Sentence?

I saw this on one of my favorite blogs and just had to make one for Charly. It is seriously genius! Charly loves to write but has been having some difficulty understanding when to space in a sentence. First she just wrote random letters, then wanted to only copy words, now she finally has the confidence to sound out words and really has been trying but when I tried to teach her spacing she started spacing every single letter. And I think she was getting spaces and periods confused because there was always a dot between the letters.

I don't really know, but at any rate, I wanted to help her and I was so excited about this idea. A space bar, or stick, whatever you want to call it.

All you are going to need is a popcicle stick, a stamp pad and a sharpie.

Paint your popcicle stick with the stamp pad (I chose pink because I have a seriously girly girl and I wanted her to be able to find it easily).

Then draw whatever you want on there. I decided to call mine a 'space bar' but I also drew a space ship on there to really drive home the multiple meanings.

What do you think? I am really hoping it helps, I'll let you know how it goes.
