Do you often feel that your students are truly a "horse of a different color"...well, then this is the activity for you! Let's celebrate their uniqueness!
This craftivity allows them to create their own horse of a different color using either colored or scrapbook paper. Simply print out the template pieces--let them pick their combinations--cut and assemble following the step-by-step directions!
Then, using the sheets given, students can add their own "Horse of a Different Color" poem. My age guidelines are as follows (but can certainly be modified by you):
Preschool/Kindergarten: Poem simply needs them to add in their own name in two places.
Kindergarten/First Grade: Poem first has a sheet for them to practice/review writing their color words, then the poem is filled in by linking color words to describe emotions they feel.
Second/Third Grade: Poem has a sheet of prewriting to fill in describing themselves. Then the student uses their answers to fill in their poem sheet.
The horse samples in the picture were made by my five and eight year old daughters--kid tested...mom AND teacher approved!
