I have taught grades 1, 2, 3, and 4 over the past 24 years. Although First Grade which is where my heart lives, I am starting a new adventure this year with 5th graders who need some extra help. Wish me luck! I am honored that you are here!
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.
