1-2-3 Come Make A Scarecrow Glyph With Me
Since the pumpkin glyph was such a big hit, I decided to make another fall glyph for you. (A Glyph Makes A Diff!) I thought scarecrows would fit for October or November.
The oval template is for girls; the round one for boys. The directions help students create their unique scarecrow from there.
I’ve found that if I gave my Y5’s a template of some sort, they did much better.
At the beginning of the year, little ones tend to have a difficult time drawing something to fill up an entire page, let alone have a circle or oval look like that particular shape.
Be sure to make one for yourself to show as an example. The ones pictured, I did for me and my husband.
It's a great way for your students to get to know you. Just a "heads up", when it comes to putting down age, I assumed the age of my students, so it didn't confuse them.
My Y5's often copied me, and when I put down lots of hair or whatever, instead of doing 4 or 5 to represent their age they did "lots" too.
I explained to them that I was ________ (age) but I was only putting down 4 or 5 strands of hair because that was how old they were and this is what their scarecrow would look like.
Glyphs are a great way to whole-group assess listening and following directions. When completed, they make adorable bulletin boards or hallway border displays too!
By having students sign their names on the back of their glyphs, you can give your students some time to collect data from their classmates, to try and figure out whose glyph belongs to whom.
Set a timer, and award a prize of some sort to the student who figures out the most glyphs. Click on the link to view/download the scarecrow glyph. For other glyphs, click on the link: Seasonal Glyphs
