I have created 3 cut and paste craftivities for the first three stories in Unit 3, 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.
An Egg is An Egg- Students will color, cut, and match the pictures.
Ruby in Her Own Time- Students can create a pond scene from the story.
Ruby, pond/nest, grass, butterflies, snail, flowers
Jan's New Home- In this craft, students will use the character cutouts to create a scene from the stories. Included are cutouts for Jan, dog, house, sign, car, suitcase, and a tree.
