With the Grade ones, I always give them tracers to cut out the body and head (head's a little smaller).
Then I fold over coloured paper and draw an eye shape on each one. They then cut out the double eye. You'd laugh if you could have seen how many kids found that concept oh so difficult to understand -- ha ha!
They cut triangles for ears and more black construction paper for whiskers. Then they draw on their cute little nose and mouth with chalk.
The only tricky part is the tail. I'm sure you're all familiar with how to make those funky spiral tails, but if not, you can see how in the pics.
Not the greatest pic, but I always like to hang them from the wire that's strung across our room.
Then we made these very cool 3-D pumpkin life-cycle books. You can find these at Sweet Tea Classroom. I made up my own, but she sells the template for super cheap!! You must pop over and visit ~ Robin has lots of great ideas.
A HUGE shout-out to Cindy from Granny Goes To School. This sweet blogger gave me a copy of her doggie spelling game today for no other reason than she's so darn nice!! Because I posted about a dog book (and mentioned how dog crazy I am) she decided I'd like her game. And she was right!
So pop on over to Cindy's and have a look at her awesome blog.
And last but not least, another VERY BIG shout-out to Cheryl from Crayons and Curls!
I just won her Skippy Jon Jones t-shirt giveaway. I am ONE happy girl 'cause like everyone else, I love Skippy!!!
You can grab this fun packet at Cheryl's TpT Store.
