Thanks for your feedback. I hope that it becomes a classroom tradition! :) Don't forget to check out my other dodecahedron projects. I think you will like what you find. Have a great day and please stop by again soon.
Thank you for your kind words. I am so pleased that both projects were a hit, I know they have been in my classroom! I hope you will stop by often and take a peek at the many new resources that are being added! Have a great new year!
OH NO! So sorry to hear you ran out of time. The first time is tricky. For me I totally thought they would whip through some of the activities that actually took them forever. I am pleased to hear that you are going to do it again next year. The display it makes is just breathtaking! Thanks so much for your feedback. Have a great day!

Awesome! Modified it a bit for high school math/geometry and photography. Thanks!
I am pleased that you were able to modify this to work on a high school level! I would love to hear how it went over with high school age kids. I wish you great success! Have a great day and please stop by again soon-

My students had a great time working on the Getting to Know You Dodecahedron at the beginning of the school year! They
couldn't wait to do their own Thanksgiving Dodecahedron. My 5th graders loved it and couldn't wait to take them home to share with their families. They asked if they could do a Holiday Dodecahedron. I told that I would have to check with Mr. Hughes! :)
Thank you for your great products!!
Your feedback made my whole day. I am SO pleased that your students have enjoyed making the dodecahedrons. Tell your students that ABSOLUTELY there is going to be a holiday edition. In fact, you will have two or three choices! My mini-dodecahedron ornament kit was just added to my shop yesterday, I have started on a full-sized holiday edition, and I hope to get one to two more holiday versions added. So... you will have to choose which one to do!
I appreciate your kind words so much, and tell your students hello for me. Can't wait to hear how it goes with the holiday edition.
Have a fantastic day and please stop by again soon!
Thanks for your feedback. I hope you enjoy making these as much as my classes have! Don't miss my Mini-Dodecahedron Christmas Ornament I just added to my store.
Please stop by again soon.

Great idea! Got lots of ooohs and aaahhs from my 5th graders. Perhaps you could make a dodecahedron project as a general book report to be used for any novel and/or a blank template so that teachers can personalize it to our needs? Thank you!
Thanks for the feedback. Great suggestion. Never thought of a book report one. I am currently making a Christmas one and a couple other surprises! Have a great day and please stop by again soon.
Thanks for your feedback. I am pleased to hear that you like the directions. I tried to be very descriptive of what I do. I hope you have great success with your projects.
Hope to have you stop by again soon-
Thank you for a fun project that touches on so many different academic areas. We are out early all week for parent-teacher conferences so this will be a great project for them to work on while we are in one of those weird times where we've wrapped everything up but do not have enough time to start our next unit.
Thanks for your thoughtful feedback. I appreciate hearing your thoughts. I hope that your students enjoy creating this as much as mine have. I too love that it uses so many different areas AND is holiday based. I wish you great success in your parent conferences. Have a great day and please stop by again soon!
Thanks for your feedback and kind words. It made my whole morning. :) I hope your students enjoy this project. It is fun to see all the small pieces connect to make an amazing display! Have a great day and please stop by again soon. :0)

The kids were really excited to do this project! Thanks!!!
Thanks so much for your feedback. I am so pleased that your students are excited. It really truly is a great project. I love seeing them hanging from the ceiling when they are all done. Enjoy and please stop by again soon! :)
Thanks for your feedback. I hope your class enjoys making this as much as mine do. I love how much curriculum is stuffed into an "art" project! :)
Have a great day and please stop by again soon-
Thanks for taking time to leave feedback. This is a great project and definitely takes a few days to complete! This one is great way to keep the kiddos engaged in literacy and math during those days before a vacation when they struggle to stay focused. :)

Looks like such a fun activity!!! Can't wait to use it in a couple of months!
This is truly one of my most favorite activities I do during the year. I love that is uses so many skills and creates such an amazing end product that the students prize and love to share with their families. I appreciate all your kind words. I wish for you to have an amazing school year! -MrHughes
Greetings! Thanks for asking this fantastic question!
I have usually spent 3-4 days at 20-30 minutes per session (5th/6th grades). Really it depends on the age of the students. 3rd graders maybe longer, 6th grader usually faster. Totally worth it though- they learn SO much and practice many academic skills.
Hope that answered your question. Let me know if you have additional questions!
