I absolutely love diddling around with words, so I’m a big fan of creating those cute “play-on words” that hopefully make you smile.
Since Instagram is so popular, I thought I’d design an Insta and InstaGram for Grandparents Day.
I had an absolute blast creating my samples, and hope you and your students (or own children) enjoy making one too.
The prep is easy-peasy “print and go”.
The phone pattern is a full page, with just six, nice-sized rectangles, which provide enough room for drawing and coloring, without being overwhelming.
There are several pattern options to fit the needs of your students:
one for both grandparents, another for just "a", as well as a separate one for "pa"; plus a generic one, for those kiddos without grandparents.
Check the PREVIEW to see my samples.
Children can “post” a picture to their “grand person” by cutting and gluing a real photograph (perhaps their school photo) to one of the rectangles on their “phone”, or drawing a picture (perhaps of themselves or grama/grampa).
I’ve also included a set of small pictures for children to color, cut & glue inside the boxes of their paper phone.
There are 16 graphics for them to choose from. A set for boys, and one for girls.
Students can design their phone anyway they want, or you can give them guidelines; such as, include at least one photo, one drawn object, etc.
There’s also a set of 4 Emoji faces. Children can choose one, and glue that to one of the empty rectangles too.
As always, I’ve included full color options for teachers, so you can quickly and easily make an example to share, as well as black & white for students.
There’s also a second page option if you want to add a bit of writing, rhyming and math to this craftivity.
The card can be done as a fun homework assignment, completed in class, or done during your Grandparents Day activities.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you lots of “Insta” fun.
