We used our handprints to make these crabs and liven up this wall.
We also used our handprints to make octopi. Then, we named them and wrote about them. The students were very cute and creative when writing their octopus's name, likes, and a describing word.
Now that I have 47 students, I ran out of room on the bulletin board so I hung them from the ceiling, too.
I made the worksheet myself and it only took about two minutes using the LD Traditional Print Lined font, seen here.
I helped each child spell one-on-one, since it was so early in the year.- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
