Writing with shaving cream is a fun little activity I stole from an ELL aide that works at my school. This is a fun way to make word study interesting. For word study, we study various words for two weeks. During the two weeks, we organize those words into short and long vowels and draw pictures to go with the words. We also get to write our spelling words in shaving cream. This is a great way to do writing for students who have never held a pencil. The students are always excited to do this.
