I have created 3 cut and paste craftivities for the first 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.
Sam, Come Back!- head, 2 ears, 2 eyes, 4 legs, body, tail, and yarn- Students will color, cut and glue the pieces together to create the character Sam the cat.
Pig in a Wig- head, 2 ears, 4 legs, nose, body, wig- Students will create Pig.
The Big Blue Ox- head, body, 2 horns, 4 legs, tail, 2 eyes, apron, pan, oven mitt, overalls, shovel, mop, apples, hat, cans- In this activity, students can use the accessories to create one of the scenes from the story. I printed out several and let them choose from 4 scenes from the story- Ox picking apples, Ox at the grocery store, Ox in the kitchen, and Ox mopping.
