Looking for some inspiration this morning? I’ve got a suggestion for how to use oogly in a different kind of activity today.
One way a lot of teachers use the oogly is as a jumping off point for creative writing with their students. The kids make ooglys – however they want – and then, they will write a short story or poem about their oogly.
For example – here’s an oogly who definitely has a story to tell. Wouldn’t you agree?

Belinda loves flowers and she loves spring. When flowers start to bloom, she wants to wear them. Today, she wore a flower on her best hat.
The stories can be simple or advanced – it depends on the kids and the time you have for the activity. So today – have the kids make an oogly and tell a story. It’s a great way to get the creative juices flowing.
