    What types of things do you do with them? Where did you get them?

    I got mine from Wal-mart, they also have them at the teacher stores.
    I have my kinders that are struggling with letter formation trace over them with their finger after I form the letter.

    I have them in my spelling center. The kids love to spell out the words using wikki stixs. They are available at Staples sometimes or a craft store or online at DickBlick, S&S Worldwide, Kidboxes, Really Good Stuff, Childcraft, etc.

    I also use them to form letters and words. I also use them in guided reading to circle words or highlight (underline) a part of a sentence.

    Miss Starr, I am so glad you said you use them in 4th. I want to use them in 3rd and was afraid it was too babyish.

    I use them all the time for the same types of activities. The kids love them. I cut mine in half. Just don't forget to take them out of books. I learned the hard way. :(

    I keep trying to figure out a use for them in 6th grade, just because they look so fun!

    Miss J,
    Where would they be in Walmart? Was it awhile since you bought them?

    I bought them in May. They were in the craft dept. I'm not sure they were called wikki sticks, but they are the same thing.

    They do get crummy after all of those grubby hands, but they last for awhile.

    I think if you put them in a ziploc bag they last quite a while. They're not too pricey... I got several dozen (about 8" long) at a teacher store for a few bucks.
