I love using small die cuts to reinforce patterning with my Y5's. You can read, save, or print this.
They enjoy making simple ABAB or ABC or AABB patterns with the little paper pieces that I cut from an Elison Die Cut machine. It's also a great exercise in listening and following directions.
We do one page each month. At the end of the year I have a great Keepsake Booklet to send home!
