1-2-3 Come Make A Puppy Pal With Me
This puppy "craftivity" is really versatile.
You can use the slider template and review upper or lowercase letters, 2D flat shapes, counting to 30, or skip counting by 2's, 3's 5's, or 10's, by cutting slits and inserting the appropriate strip of paper (slider).
These make a nice end-of-the-year activity, to send home with students as a fun way to review and practice over the summer, so they don't forget what they've learned.
Likewise, they are a terrific way to introduce your new students to these concepts at the beginning of the year as well.
Sliders are an easy way to whole-group assess and a fun way to review standards via playing "I spy" games.
Children can also make a keepsake card for Father's Day or Mother's Day, or to give to anyone else, by simply writing the recipient's name on the bone.
What makes this puppy extra special, is that you trace a student's foot with their shoe on, to make the puppy's ears.
Add a school photo for even more pizzazz.
I made the card on the right for my daughter, from baby Kaiden.
Finally, you can also use the Puppy Pal as a topper for a variety of writing prompts.
I've made writing prompt "bones" for the beginning of the year as well as the end. i.e. "I'll have a dog-gone great school year because ..." or I had a dog-gone good school year because..."
