I have created 3 cut and paste craftivities for the last three stories in Unit 1, Reading Street 2008 version. I used these to go with writing activities for each story. Students could also complete these crafts as a center or a Fun Friday activity. I created these craftivities to be very teacher friendly- just print and go. The students do all the work.
A Fox and a Kit- head, 2 ears, 4 legs, body, tail- Students will color, cut and glue the pieces together to create the character a fox.
Get the Egg- character cutouts for Ben and Kim, the red bird, bush, nest and eggs- In this craft, students can draw their own background on a large piece of paper and then color, cut, and glue the characters to create a scene from the story. Students could also color, cut and glue onto popscicle sticks to use as puppets.
Animal Park- Students can choose from 4 animals for this craftivity.
Lion- head, tail,2 ears, body, 4 paws, mane
Giraffe- head, ears, neck, tail, body, 4 legs
Zebra- head, body, tail, 4 legs, 2 ears
Elephant- head, trunk, 2 ears, body, tail, 4 legs
