: This "Pattern Picture" pack is perfect to use on the one hundredth day of school. The colorful banners will add some whimsy and pizzazz to your classroom. The banners say "100 Days", so you could also use them for a writing topic, such as "What I would like to accomplish in the next 100 Days"..... Use them however you would like.
What are Pattern Pictures?
They are fun themed pictures with patterns behind the image. When students color the patterns in a variety of different colors, the finished product is whimsical and fun. They can then color the main image that sits in front of the patterns. These are sure to add colorful pizzazz to your classroom. For the most pep from your pictures, tell your students to use lots of different colors and try not to have two of the same colors touching. The patterns are the same, but each banner looks different because students get to pick their own colors.
I have been told by many teachers that they like for their children to write first and then color. They say these banners are a huge incentive to write, because the kids love the finished look of the banner with the writing and coloring. They really do make a fun display.
This pack includes a "Pattern Picture" in a couple of different formats. You can simply use it as a coloring sheet for the 100th Day of School, or you can create a pennant banner. In addition, writing paper formatted to be glued to the coloring sheet or the pennant is included. The extra-long writing banner option is neat!
Ways to Use:
Make a cute banner to display in your classroom on the 100th Day to go along with your other themed activities. You could have students write a poem, such as an acrostic. You could use it as a coloring activity during indoor recess or if you need a last minute substitute activity. It's suitable for morning work or even a quiet activity for bus call. Add it to a writing center too. Use the finished product to decorate your classroom or to make a hallway display.
