Shelley Lovett with Child Care Land demonstrates how to make your own classroom pointer sticks. You can use pointer sticks as a prompt to help enhance learning in your classroom. You can make the pointers in accordance with holiday seasons. To make a pointer, you will need a 12-inch wooden dowel, an unfinished wooden shape, paint and accessories for decoration. First, paint your dowel and wood topper in your desired color. Next, using a hot glue gun, glue the shape to the dowel. Apply embellishments to the wooden shape to dress it up and make it festive. Pointer stick props help to engage children in the learning process.
