Sail into summer or a new school year
with this easy
gift for your students.
I’ve been doing “fan” sailboats since I was a little girl, so that’s 50+ years ago!
In those days, I’d use a Popsicle stick for the mast, but I thought it would be sweet to stick on a pencil, pen, marker, glow stick
(bracelet), pixie stick
, (filled with powdered candy), or an individually wrapped piece of licorice as the mast, to add that little something extra.
There are two sail patterns
One is for the end of the year
: “Have fun sailing into summer. I hope it’s fantastic!”
The 2nd one is for back to school:
“Have fun sailing into a new school year. I hope it’s fantastic!”
I chose the word fantastic to play off the fan portion of the right sail.
The BTS one also has a “Welcome” flag
option, if you want to add a finishing touch.
Place on your students’ desks or tuck in their backpacks on the first or last day of school.
Besides the color patterns
, I’ve also included black & white
Give a summer
boat to this year’s students
, then have them make an apple
boat for next year’s
Win-win & a super time saver
for you. Plus, accordion folding paper is a wonderful fine motor skill that strengthens finger muscles.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping you enjoy sailing with your students, whether it’s for a much-deserved summer break, or the excitement of a brand new year. Woo Hoo & Bon Voyage
