There’s nothing quite like a quick and easy little craftivity, to make practicing a variety of standards
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
* The “sliders”
are a quick, easy and super-fun way to whole group assess
a variety of standards
* 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.
