Cut & Paste--GREAT for fine motor ANY time of year!!! Christmas in July!? No problem! Use this adorable snowman poem and craft to have your child create a poem book you'll never want to throw away!
I used this activity as a kindergarten center and the kids LOVED it. I prepped booklets of construction paper with 1 white piece for the cover and 6 blue pieces. I scrounged up ALL of the white crayons I could find because the pictures of snow end up being on the blue construction paper!
Once everyone's was done, the poem lived in our poetry "notebooks" and the kids could use it when reading independently to practice fluency, review 1:1 correspondence, etc. It was also a good indication of which students realized that the pictures (they illustrated!) have to match the words!
Great fine motor because kids can cut out. Accelerated students can cut & glue, then try and write. Depends on the level of your students.
