There’s nothing quite like a quick and easy little craftivity, to make practicing a variety of standards fun.
Cutting and folding are also great ways to strengthen those finger and hand muscles.
The paper elf can be used as a “slider” or turned into a "belly booklet”.
I’ve also included an easy-peasy “color me” option, where you can skip the craft, or simply do both.
Your kiddos will enjoy making the little mini, belly booklets.
There are 3 options:
* Upper & lowercase letters that students trace & write, with enough room for older kiddos to write a word at the top and bottom;
* Numbers 1-12, where students also trace & write (play the Twelve Days of Christmas carol, while they’re working).
* There’s also a shape booklet. Here students trace, draw & color the 2D shapes, then trace & write the shape word.
Each booklet is on a one-page pattern, so students could make all of them, over a period of a few days, for a really big belly book!
* The “sliders” are a quick, easy and super-fun way to whole group assess a variety of standards as well.
* There’s a slider for: numbers 1-10, 1-30, counting backwards from 10-0 & 20-0, as well as skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s, and 10s; plus one for upper case letters, another for lowercase, and finally one for the 2D shapes.
* Choose which one you want to work on. I have my kiddos trace the letter & number strips in a red and green, ABAB color pattern, and color each shape a different color.
To whole group assess, simply call out a letter, number or shape. Students “slide” to it, and hold up their elf.
You can see at a glance, who is having difficulty.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your little cutie patooties enjoy practicing a variety of skills with Little Elf.
