1-2-3 Come Do Some More "Needs & Wants" Craftivities With Me   

One of my favorite clip artists, Melonheadz, came up with some adorable "big mouth" kiddos, which inspired me to use them to design two new "Needs & Wants" packets. 

needs and wants activities, needs and wants crafts, needs and wants definiition, needs and wants booklet These clip art kids, are telling about their needs & wants, via a wheel craft and a "flip-the-flap" booklet.

When it comes to “I need and want this, that & whatever…” children can have a pretty big voice expressing themselves; so these two craftivities are  super-fun ways for students to practice "Needs & Wants" economics.

needs and wants activities, needs and wants crafts, needs and wants definiition, needs and wants booklet First up is the "flip-the-face" flap booklet.

There are 4 girl & 4 boy “face covers” to choose from. Patterns come in black & white for students, as well as full-color , so that you can quickly and easily make a sample to share.

needs and wants activities, needs and wants crafts, needs and wants definiition, needs and wants booklet Children choose a “face cover”, then color, trim and fold the “mouth” so that it flips up.

There are blank “mouth” pages so that students can illustrate their own “needs & wants”, as well as black and white “needs” graphics on a page, so that students can color and label them.

There’s a definition page for “needs” as well as “wants”, which acts as an introduction and separation in the booklet.

Students also have the option of gluing their “wants” to the back of their booklet. A back page pattern is included.

When everyone is done, read the booklet as a whole group for a nice review. Call on children to share one of their “wants” pages.

This activity also makes a super-fun homework assignment for older students.
Completed projects make an adorable bulletin board display.

There are 3 girl & 3 boy “wheel covers” to choose from.

needs and wants activities, needs and wants crafts, needs and wants definiition, needs and wants booklet I’ve provided blank templates for the “center” pie wheels, so that children can illustrate their own graphics.

The first “pie slice” section, defines “needs”. The “wants” wheel has a definition section as well.

There’s also an option where the “needs” wheel, has black & white graphics for students to color and label.

So you can quickly and easily make a sample to share, I’ve also included full-color patterns.

Students color and trim, then fasten their “needs” wheel to their “kid cover” using a brass brad.

Give older students the option of gluing their needs & wants wheels back-to-back, fastening with a front as well as back cover; so they just flip their wheel over to explain their wants.

There are are 3 boy & 3 girl back cover options, as well as 2 others.
This packet also has the culminating assessment activity.

shape activities, shape crafts, turkey activties, turkey crafts, 2D shapes, shape bulletin boardsSince Thanksgiving is just around the corner, today's featured FREEBIE  is a super-cute "The Shape Of My Turkey" packet.

Make the large turkey head shapes and use them for a cute November bulletin board, review or interesting way to assess. 

Students can choose their favorite shape and turn it into the body of a turkey by adding the construction-paper parts.

A set of turkey shape word cards is also included.  Use them as pocket or flashcards for review and assessment as well. 

Make extra sets to play Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" games.  You could also cut them apart and turn them into puzzles.

needs and wants activitiesWell that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. 

The sun is finally shining after way too many damp, chilly and dreary November days; so it's time to take my poodle pup Chloe, for some much-needed fresh air. 

Wishing you a happy-go-lucky day.
