I have created 3 cut and paste craftivities for the first three stories in Unit 2, Reading Street 2008 version. I use these to go with writing activities for each story. Students can 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.
Max and Ruby: A Big Fish for Max- character cutouts for Max, Ruby, and Grandma. 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.
The Farmer in the Hat- Included in this craft are masks from the story.
Masks-Hen, Duck, Gerbil, Cat, Pig, Horse
Who Works Here? In this activity, students will color, cut, and glue the community worker onto the corresponding box.
