My Spaghetti & Meatball Pointer

Yes, this Italian has struck again with another pasta idea.
 This pointer, Spaghetti & Meatball, reminds children to leave enough space between each word for a meatball, but only enough space between the letters of a word for a piece of spaghetti!

How cute it that?  And you can make it so easily with a bamboo skewer and a wooden bead from any craft store like Michael's.  Just paint the meatball brown or red (like mine) to look like it's covered with sauce.

My kids love to say, "Spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti, meatball...." as we look at the spaces on the sentence written on the board each day.

We use this with our 4 Star Writing Journal.


  1. Hi Heidi! Hope you had a blessed Easter. Glad you like this idea. It's another one of my Italian ideas! :oD
