I have taught grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, Transition, EIP, and now Literacy Coaching over the past 28 years. Although First Grade which is where my heart lives, I spend a lot of time in K-5 classrooms daily! I am so glad you stopped by!
I just couldn't resist sharing just one more Seuss activity that we did. It turned out AWESOME and the students just LOVED it!
My art teacher made these with the fifth graders in art class and displayed them in the library. I took one look and said WE are so going to make those!
And we did! Check them out...
They were pretty easy.
We took an unsharpened pencil and colored strips with a black permanent marker. Then, we took yarn and wrapped it around a small rectangle of cardboard. I tied it off tightly with a small piece of the same color yarn. I made one cut to cut it off the cardboard. I hot glued the yarn to the top of the pencil. Finally, students mounted in a piece of playdough.
