This packet includes: a class book where your current students write a page of advice for your next year's class; a mouse "craftivity" where students jot one piece of advice underneath their mouse's head (it flips up); plus a bookmark from you and one for your students to make for an in-coming kiddo.
Use this "craftivity" for the beginning of the school year and have students complete the summer writing prompt, or use it at the end of the year and have students make the "Taco" 'bout a great year ___________ (fill in grade) was excelente." template.
Have students complete the writing prompt: "You're going to have a great year 'bee-cause'..." on the pages inside the mini apple booklet, and then glue it to the bumblebee that your current students make for your next year's kiddos.
Your students will enjoy this New Year writing prompt as they reflect about things they'd like to do less of, like fighting with a sibling, goofing off, being late, . . . as well as things they think they'd like to do more of: studying, reading, exercising etc.
Students reflect on the past and jot down memorable moments inside that year, as well as activities, goals, hopes for the New Year. Includes pages through 2024. Mount completed reflections on construction paper for an interesting January bulletin board.
Your students will enjoy choosing a 2D shape, folding and snipping it into a lacey snowflake that will become the tummy of their snowman. Includes directions, patterns and a list of helpful websites for more lovely paper snowflake activities.
Rip and tear activities are a super-fun way to help strengthen children's finger muscles. Completed craftivities look like a mosaic and make awesome bulletin boards.
Make a cute winter bulletin board, or locker decoration, with these snowman name stackers, which will help little ones with name identification, as well as a shape review of circles, squares and rectangles.
Looking for a quick and easy bulletin board for January, or need an interesting winter writing prompt? Run off copies of the New Year's resolutions template on white construction paper. Students complete the writing prompt, then trace their hand, color it, and add some rings decorated with flat-backed rhinestones. For that extra bit of pizzazz, glue their photo somewhere on their work, and mount on their favorite color of construction paper.
Students choose either a mitten or snowman pattern; trace it onto a wordy section of the newspaper, and trim. Children guess-timate how many S's or Mm's they will find and write that information on the matching recording sheet. Students circle the letters and count them as they go and then fill in the rest of their recording sheet.
