I poured the rice out onto paper towel lined cookie sheets and let dry. Once they are COMPLETELY dry put it in a sensory table and play.
My plan is to use this as part of Daily 5 and put sight word cards in the rice and the children can hunt for either a specific word or find all the words they can. I will probably either make worksheets or have the children write the words they find. So easy but a fun way to "spice up" sight word practice.
