These accessories are cheap and reusable. They are very helpful for students learning one-to-one correspondence with counters, numbers, letters, or words. They are also useful for reminding early readers to keep their eyes on their words when they are rereading texts. I have also used them to motivate students during choral reading by passing the reading finger around to students who keep their eyes on the words and use a good reader voice.
