Hooray for 900 followers! Thank you
I really do appreciate you, and get excited to see this number grow.
As promised, here’s a special FREEBIE to help celebrate.
This quick, easy and fun New Years writing prompt craftivity,
makes an awesome bulletin board
or hallway display.
Children complete the writing prompt: “High fives for me! I made these New Year resolutions and am trying to keep them.”
Encourage students to think of five.
Afterwards, children pick a partner
and take turns tracing each others hand and wrist on a bit of flesh-tone construction paper, then trim.
Drawing fingernails, a watchband and rings adds extra pizzazz.
Have children write the New Year below the “knuckles”.
I’ve included a clock pattern
students can cut and glue to their wristband, drawing hands to show midnight.
The girls LOVED adding flat-backed jewels
to their rings. You can get self-stick ones, or use mini glue dots. Glitter nail polish
was another option and highlight.
Students glue their hand print on a diagonal on the bottom, right corner of their completed writing prompt.
For more color, have children glue the writing prompt paper on a sheet of colorful construction paper, then scatter on a bulletin board or hallway wall.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a year filled with lots of “high five” teaching moments.
