1-2-3 Come Make a SPLASH With Me!

end of the school year activities, end of the school year crafts, end of the school year writing prompts, end of the school year bulletin boards, graduation songs, a list of end of the year slideshow songs, back to school writing prompts, back to school bulletin boards, icebreakers“Making a Splash!” is a super-fun writing prompt that your students will really enjoy.

The craftivity is very versatile, as you can use it for the end of the year, or for back to school.

It's a fun icebreaker & interesting way to get to know your students too.

end of the school year activities, end of the school year crafts, end of the school year writing prompts, end of the school year bulletin boards, graduation songs, a list of end of the year slideshow songs, back to school writing prompts, back to school bulletin boards, icebreakersSimply choose the appropriate writing prompt “cover” for the flip-up booklet:
*  “Diving Into Summer and Looking Forward to…”
*  “Diving Into a New School Year and Looking Forward to…”
Or

Use the “Diving Into ____________ and Looking Forward to…” option, so that students can fill in their new grade, or something else that they are looking forward to. (Diving into sports & looking forward to playing soccer & baseball.) 

As you can see by the photo on your right, the writing prompt is the "title" on the "cover" of a mini booklet that flips up to reveal what students have written.

The writing prompts are also easily diversified for various ability levels & grades; as you can keep things simple for younger students, who can write one or two sentences, or a list; while having preschool children dictate a few one-word answers.

Older students will be expected to write one or two pages of more in-depth explanations.
There’s a blank page pattern for this.

Completed projects make a terrific bulletin board, or wall display in the hall.
Because students trace & trim their own foot, each project looks a bit different.

end of the school year activities, end of the school year crafts, end of the school year writing prompts, end of the school year bulletin boards, graduation songs, a list of end of the year slideshow songs, back to school writing prompts, back to school bulletin boards, icebreakersI’ve included several "Big Splash!" posters you can use for that as well.

For additional writing options, there’s also an “I’m Ready to Make a Big Splash!” writing prompt cover, which works for both summer & back to school, allowing you a chance to touch on idioms if you want.

To help you grab that extra teachable moment, I’ve included some background information, samples & links about idioms, as well as a definition poster.

Introducing this terminology is not just for “big kids”, as my 1st graders easily understood the concept & excitedly shared all sorts of examples!

If so, you'll find today's featured FREEBIE especially helpful.  It's an alphabetical list of 150, (teacher tested) songs suitable for your end of the year programs. 

I hope you find it a helpful stress-buster, and one less thing you have to look for.

1-2-3 Come Do More Aesop's Fables Activities With Me

 Last week I blogged about Aesop's "The Tortoise & the Hare" fable. This week I just finished a storytelling slider and wheel craftivities for "The Wind & the Sun". 

aesops fables, aesops fables crafts, aesop fables, acticities for aesops fables, the sun and the wind, the wind and the sun, sun activities, wind acticities, mothers day cards, mothers day crafts, sequencing a story activities, retelling a story activities, free mothers day activities My students really enjoy this simple and short genre, which makes the fables perfect for practicing a variety of standards, particularly sequencing and retelling a story. 

“The Wind and the Sun” is the 2nd in my Aesop's Fables series, so if you have a favorite that you’d like me to design a story wheel or slider for, you can drop me an e-mail at: dianehen@teachwithme.com

aesops fables, aesops fables crafts, aesop fables, acticities for aesops fables, the sun and the wind, the wind and the sun, sun activities, wind acticities, mothers day cards, mothers day crafts, sequencing a story activities, retelling a story activities, free mothers day activitiesI think that the slider is easier for little ones. However; I've also done the wheels with my Young Fives with great success. 

My kiddos enjoy both, and like making them so much, that they often ask "Do we get to make a storytelling craft with this book?"

aesops fables, aesops fables crafts, aesop fables, acticities for aesops fables, the sun and the wind, the wind and the sun, sun activities, wind acticities, mothers day cards, mothers day crafts, sequencing a story activities, retelling a story activities, free mothers day activitiesBecause Aesop’s fables are very short, the wheels have just 4 “pie sections”, making this a simple enough craftivity for preschool children as well;  while teachers of kindergarten and 1st grade students, can prqctice and review fractions, particularly quarters.

There are full color patterns to use for an independent center, as well as a sample to share, plus black & white patterns, so students can make their own. I like giving both options, so that teachers have a choice, as they know what's best for their students' abilities.

Simply turn the wheel or pull the slider strip, then call on a child to explain what’s happening in that graphic.

aesops fables, aesops fables crafts, aesop fables, acticities for aesops fables, the sun and the wind, the wind and the sun, sun activities, wind acticities, mothers day cards, mothers day crafts, sequencing a story activities, retelling a story activities, free mothers day activitiesAfterwards, have students pick a partner and take turns retelling the fable to each other. Sometimes we do this with our older, reading buddies.
This is a quick, easy & fun way to check comprehension as a whole group.

For writing practice, and a different way to check comprehension, have students complete the “Here’s What Happened” writing prompt worksheet, then color it.

aesops fables, aesops fables crafts, aesop fables, acticities for aesops fables, the sun and the wind, the wind and the sun, sun activities, wind acticities, mothers day cards, mothers day crafts, sequencing a story activities, retelling a story activities, free mothers day activitiesThere’s also a “What’s the Moral of the Story” worksheet as well. These comprehension checks come in both packets. I switch things up, by using different clip art.

As a real time saver for teachers, I’ve included colorful answer keys for both worksheets, which can also be used as a whole group discussion with younger kiddos.

To further check comprehension, and reinforce the “sequencing a story” standard, I’ve also included a “color, cut & glue” sequencing worksheet.

This too, comes in color as well as black & white, so that you can do the activity independently with older students, as well as a whole group lesson with little ones.

Last week here in Michigan, we had an ice storm mixed with snow (What?!), while this week we seemed to have skipped spring and bounced into summer, with temperatures in the high 70's and even a few days in the 80's! 

So it's off to go play in my garden to get it ready for planting next week, that if Mother Nature cooperates.

Wishing you a zippidy-doo-dah day, with plenty of sunshine.

1-2-3 Come Do Some Aesop's Fables Craftivities With Me

Do you read fables as part of your genre studies? I do.
They are a simple & quick way to cover a variety of standards and my students really enjoy them.

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsSince my fairy tale “flip ups”, “sliders” and “wheel” craftivities have been such fun for students & easy for teachers to implement, I decided to use the same format for a collection of Aesop’s Fables.

“The Tortoise & the Hare” story, is the first in a series, so if there's a favorite fable you'd like an activity for, you can e-mail me. (dianehen@teachwithme.com)

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsFirst up, as a super-fun way to retell "The Tortoise & the Hare" is a "Flip-the-Face" craftivity.

Children have two options: They can choose to make a turtle or a rabbit.

The "flip-up booklet" is only 4-pages long, which keeps things simple even for young children.
All four pages are on a one-page pattern, making printing a breeze.

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsStudents color, cut & collate the pages, then staple them to the base and glue on the cover.

I purposely did not number the pages, so that you can easily check & assess comprehension.

For writing practice, older students can use the back of the page to jot down what’s taking place.
I’ve also included a blank page pattern, should you want your students to illustrate their own booklets.

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsAs a writing prompt, there’s an optional page that asks: “What is the moral of the story?” The "slider" & wheel craftivities have this on a worksheet, which students complete & color.

So teachers can quickly and easily make an example to share, I’ve included full color versions, as well as black & white patterns for students.

This flip up, as well as the "slider" & storytelling wheel, all come with a different “Here’s What Happened” worksheet, which provides further writing practice, and another means to check comprehension.

When everyone is done with whatever craftivity you've made,  sequence the story as a whole group, by calling on children to explain what’s happening for that graphic.

Afterwards, have students pick a partner and take turns retelling the fable to each other, then encourage them to share their booklet with their families, to once again reinforce these standards.

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsCompleted "flip-ups" make a cute bulletin board too.

turtle slider for aesop fables the tortoise the hare craftNext up is "The Tortoise & the Hare" slider craft, which will also help your students retell the story in the proper order.

As with the "flip up", there are 2 outside slider options to choose from: a turtle or the rabbit.

Students color the story elements on the “slider strip” then cut and glue it together.

bunny slider for the tortoise the hare storytelling craft Page 1As they pull on the end of this strip, the various pictures go through the “window” on the animal’s belly, so that children can take turns retelling the story to a partner or reading buddy, then take their craftivity home to share with their family, once again practicing these standards.

I introduce the lesson by reading the fable, then share my completed "slider craft” with my students.

After I read the story, we retell the tale together using the picture prompts on my slider.

I have them guess which story element they think comes next, before I pull the picture through the “window”.

tortoise the hare worksheetsMy students now know what’s expected of them, and are very excited to transition to making an Aesop’s fable slider of their own.

This packet also has several worksheets to further reinforce sequencing, practice writing and as an easy & additional means to assess comprehension.

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsFinally, another way to practice retelling "The Tortoise & the Hare" is with a storytelling wheel

There are 3 different wheel options. The first one is a  bunny’s backside, complete with a cotton ball tail.

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, storytelling wheels, story telling sliders, storytelling crafts, story telling flip ups, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsThis would be the turtle’s view of the rabbit as he dashes ahead in the race. You don't have to add the feet, but I think it adds to the cuteness, and just takes a few minutes more.

The next option is  a turtle topper.

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, storytelling wheels, story telling sliders, storytelling crafts, story telling flip ups, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsThe turtle peeks out at the top of the wheel that he's holding.

For more of a contrast, I printed the wheel pattern on green construction paper.  You could use a variety of colors and give children a choice.

Finally, the third pattern is the easiest, as it's just a simple circle wheel, which children color and cut out; making it perfect for little ones with limited cutting ability or if you're in a time crunch. 

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, storytelling wheels, story telling sliders, storytelling crafts, story telling flip ups, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsBecause Aesop's fables are very short, the wheels have just 4 “pie sections”, making this a simple enough craftivity for preschool children.

Likewise, because the graphic circle is divided into fourths, be sure and take that teachable moment to review fractions, with kinders & first graders.

My students easily wrap their heads around whole & half, but have a bit of difficulty getting quarters, which is one of the reasons I limited the graphics to 4, so that I could immerse them in yet another example.

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, storytelling wheels, story telling sliders, storytelling crafts, story telling flip ups, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsWhen everyone is done, practice telling “The Tortoise & the Hare” using the manipulative by simply turning the wheel. Call on a child to explain what’s happening in that graphic.

This packet also has the additional writing prompt worksheets.

mothers day crafts, mothers day activities, mothers day gifts kids can makeBecause Mother's Day is just around the corner, the featured FREEBIE for today, is a sweet butterfly craft that's made by tracing a child's foot with their shoe on.

the tortoise & the hare fable, the hare & the tortoise fable, aesops fables, storytelling wheels, story telling sliders, storytelling crafts, story telling flip ups, activities for aesops fables, fables, the moral of the story, aesop fables craftsIt's sure to become a special keepsake. 

Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.

If you can believe it, we're still getting snow flurries here in Michigan!

Although it's "officially" been spring for weeks, Mother Nature is certainly not cooperating!

On the positive side, it's the perfect day to snuggle in and craft away.

seuss activities, seuss crafts, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, seuss centers, math centers, counting activities one fish two fish activitiesBy mixing reading with math, I get more bang for my time, so I thought I’d design an activity using Seuss’s book, “One Fish Two Fish”.

So that you can easily diversify your lessons, I’ve included two booklets in the packet.

seuss activities, seuss crafts, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, seuss centers, math centers, counting activities one fish two fish activitiesThe first one is an emergent reader, which is packed with over 40 Dolch sight words.

For your convenience, I’ve included a full color version, so teachers can quickly & easily make an example to share, as well as a black & white option for your students to color.

seuss activities, seuss crafts, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, seuss centers, math centers, counting activities one fish two fish activitiesUsing Seuss’s story for inspiration, I’ve included some of his rhyming words, so there are "bad & glad" fish, along with fish that are fat, with one wearing a yellow hat; as well as one with a star and another driving a car.

seuss activities, seuss crafts, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, seuss centers, math centers, counting activities one fish two fish activitiesThe last page is also very “Seuss-ical” as well: "From 1 to 10, from 10 to 1, counting is a lot of fun!

seuss activities, seuss crafts, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, seuss centers, math centers, counting activities one fish two fish activitiesExcept for numbers 9 and 10, there are two numbers featured on a "fish bowl" page, which is a nice time saver that conserves paper.

1-2-3 Come Do A Seuss Craft With Me

It's "March is Reading Month" and Seuss is on the loose!

seuss crafts, seuss centers, seuss writing prompts, 5 senses activities, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, march is reading month activties

"You may have heard of Thing 1 and Thng 2.  They are a bit silly and a pretty bright blue.

I wonder though, if you've heard of Thing Three.  I doubt that you have because that would be me!"

And so begins the introductory poem that I wrote for a super-fun, Seuss inspired, writing prompt craft that I feel confident your students will really enjoy!

seuss crafts, seuss centers, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, march is reading month activtiesAn added bonus is that completed Thing 3 projects make an amazing bulletin board.
I’ve included 2 posters for the center of your display.

This is easy-easy “print & go” prep for you, with a lot of bang for your time.

The packet is very versatile so that you can easily diversify your lessons.

Pre K kiddos can make their “Thing 3” and leave it at that, or dictate their answer to one of the writing prompts.  

seuss crafts, seuss centers, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, march is reading month activtiesStudents can color my Thing 3 pattern, or use the blank-face pattern and draw their own. 

I made matching turquoise hair for my example, but for more variety, give children a choice of rainbow bright or neon colors, which make for an especially vibrant display.

seuss crafts, seuss centers, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, march is reading month activtiesYou don’t have to, but to make it even more of a keepsake, have students trace one of their hands on a folded sheet of complimentary-colored construction paper, then cut once to make two hands.

Glue them to the sides of the back of Thing 3’s “belly” circle. Bend them a bit forward for some 3D pop.

seuss crafts, seuss centers, 5 senses activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, march is reading month activtiesFor beginning or advanced writers, there are 11 writing prompt pages.
Pick your favorite or give children a choice. 

Another option is to make a “Things Journal”, doing all of the writing prompts.

Students can create their booklet on one day, then each day afterwards, complete a writing prompt page. 

Time constraint? Making & assembling the booklet can be done as a homework assignment, then returned to complete the writing in class.

Finished booklets make a nice keepsake and your “Writing Block” is taken care of for several weeks! Woo hoo.

seuss crafts, seuss centers, 5 senses activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, march is reading month activtiesI’ve found that when students get to share things about themselves, they are excited to get right down to the business of writing.

These interesting prompts not only do that, but they are also thought provoking.
I’ve actually had students who have no clue what they’d like to be, or places they’d like to go. They simply have never really thought about it.
When I tell them “The sky’s the limit” imaginations take flight.

seuss crafts, seuss centers, 5 senses activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, march is reading month activtiesHow much you want students to write is up to you; share one “thing” or as many as three per prompt, leaving enough room on the bottom to illustrate one of their thoughts.

I chose 3 examples to go along with the "Thing 3" theme.
Be prepared for some enthusiastic writers to ask if they can list even more “things”!

As a fun way to get to know their classmates better, have a time of sharing when everyone has completed that prompt for the day.

seuss crafts, seuss centers, 5 senses activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, march is reading month activtiesAnother booklet option reviews the 5 senses.
You can do this “instead of” the writing prompt pages or in "addition to"; creating a journal that will now last 3 weeks!

Using your five senses to describe things you like seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching, makes for some wonderful descriptive writing too. Remind students to use plenty of adjectives.


seuss crafts, seuss centers, 5 senses activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, march is reading month activtiesAs with some of the writing prompts, I’ve included my completed "5 senses" example pages, so that you can quickly & easily make a sample to share.

seuss crafts, seuss centers, 5 senses activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, march is reading month activtiesThe student pages include a graphic for each of the 5 senses that they color.  Have them illustrate one of their thoughts on the bottom as well.

Today's featured FREEBIE also has a Seuss theme.  I designed this word work packet to go along with his book Green Eggs and Ham.

seuss crafts, seuss centers, 5 senses activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, green eggs and ham activities, march is reading month activtiesDid you know that Dr. Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham on a bet that he couldn’t write a book with fifty or fewer distinct words? 

After doing some checking, I discovered that the bet was made in 1960 with Bennett Cerf, the co-founder of Random House, and was for $50.  Ironically, even though Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham using EXACTLY 50 words, it's been reported that Cerf never paid up.

seuss crafts, seuss centers, 5 senses activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, green eggs and ham activities, march is reading month activtiesGreen Eggs and Ham ranks in the top 3 best-selling Seuss books, so it's definitely worth reading.  I painstakingly found all 50 words in my copy, then alphabetized them in a handy list, as well as on an anchor chart poster. All but 8 of these words, appear on the Dolch word lists (6 of the 8 are nouns; the other six nouns in the story ARE on the Dolch noun word list!)  

Use the 50 word cards to play a variety of games like "Speed", Memory Match and "I Have; Who Has?". Students could also pick a partner, and play "Speed" against them, to see who can arrange their set of cards in alphabetical order first. The packet also includes a 2-page tip list of ideas, like Kaboom!

For writing practice, print, laminate and trim the cards.  Toss them into a Seuss hat and have students choose 2-3 and incorporate those words in sentences.  Remind them to use proper spacing, capitalization and end punctuation

So that children can practice long and short vowels, I've included two green eggs vowel sorting mats.

For some rhyming practice, run off the two "trace, write and alphabetize" worksheets, which use words that rhyme with Sam and green.  All of these activities are perfect for your Daily 5 word work block. 

seuss crafts, seuss centers, 5 senses activities, seuss writing prompts, seuss bulletin boards, thing 1 and thing 2 activities, thing 1 and 2 crafts, read across america activities, green eggs and ham activities, march is reading month activtiesWell that's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by.

March has roared in like a lion here in Michigan, so it's time for a cup of hot chamomile tea and a little reading by the fire. 

Wishing you a carefree, lamb kind of day.
