Incorporate art into your writing program and see how thankful your students will be! Being able to create before or after writing is a great motivator, at least it is in my 2nd grade class! Using construction paper, a little yarn, crayons, some glue, scissors, and a hole punch, your students will gobble up this fun activity. In this download by Kris' Common Core Crutches, you will receive step by step directions on how to assemble the Pilgrim girl, pictures for each step, pattern pieces, and additional writing ideas you may wish to implement. This project is a sure way to brighten up your classroom environment and get ready for the holiday!
