I love making resources. I mean, really, really love it. So, I saw this idea on the internet some time and decided to make them for my class. It is a spaceman to help children remember to put spaces between words as they write.
Just not to be left out of the fun, I made a bigger one for me to use on the board. Two fingers fit in there. So I was able to demonstrate as I wrote on the board.
Somehow they remembered to put a ‘finger space’ when the spaceman was there to remind them. Even the ones who had already mastered the spacing issue, kept asking to use Mr Spaceman when writing.
Hope you like this idea. Better yet, try it!

The resource was made for personal use only and I gained no profit in making it.
