This sweet little pack is filled with simple poems for the months of August through June. For each month, students are to paint their hands to make creations to match the poems. All poem sheets contain some clipart to make the creations even cuter. :)
This pack can be used in a few fun ways.
1) Prior to the start of the school year, bind packets of poems for each student. Create throughout the year, and give the packets to parents as super special end of the year gifts.
2) Every month, students create. Laminate the sheets, and send them home as a monthly keepsake.
Instructions for Painting
For handprints, I suggest for an adult to have paint prepared on a paper plate. Adult calls students to table one-by-one, and paints each child’s hand. Remember to have a drying spot prepared.
For fingerprints, I suggest to have four paper plates prepared at a table. Adult calls groups of four students to table to paint. This allows for adult to keep a close eye on all of the painters.
Example from Packet:
August: Students paint hands black. Once the paint is dry, add heart stickers to palms. Note that this poem comes with three options, one for preschool, one for K, one for 1st.
There are painting instructions and poem sheets for August-June. Note that this packet goes along perfectly with my Monthly Photo and Writing Pack / Scrapbook. The combination of the two products creates a completely adorable keepsake. :)
