Review shapes with this fun "craftivity." Use as a bulletin board, center activity or have students make one of their own.
Reinforce a variety of standards, with these snowman puzzles that cover upper and lowercase letters, counting forwards and backwards + skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's, and 10's. Make a set to use as puzzles for an independent center, by printing, laminating and trimming the pieces. Also print and laminate the blank grid. Students use it to place the puzzle pieces on top.
You can make these into puzzles, laminate and use each year, or run off copies on green construction paper and have students cut up their own puzzle. I've provided a blank grid for you to run off on white construction paper, so students can place the puzzle pieces on it, or have children cut and glue their pieces to a sheet of white or black construction paper, turning this "craftivity" into a lovely bulletin board. Your caption can be: TREE-mendous Work By ___________________'s (teacher's name) kindergarteners (grade).
Students practice giving directions in this fun writing prompt that makes a cute bulletin board: "Hats Off to Great Directional Writing!" Encourage students to use transitions, ordinal numbers + adjectives. Pom poms and white glitter add that finishing touch.
Teach secondary colors by having students mix yellow and blue to make a green wreath. When dry, they add red finger-print holly berries, a bow and a poem in the center.
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.
Students write something that they are thankful for on each leaf. There are several options for making this fall writing-prompt wreath. Adding a school photo as well as some glitter, gives them that finishing touch. These make a wonderful November bulletin board too.
Your room will smell delicious when you make these acorns that are sprinkled with ground cinnamon & /or ground cloves. Practice name writing with the glitter acorns. Both make cute borders for your November bulletin board featuring student work.
This is a quick and easy autumn "craftivity" with awesome results. Completed projects make a wonderful fall bulletin board. Students sharpen old peeled crayons and sprinkle the shavings on one of 7 bare tree templates. An adult presses a warm iron on top of a sheet of waxed paper that covers the child's creation. The shavings blend to make more colors. For a bit of pizzazz, mount on black construction paper.
