We made Cat in the Hats (idea from Jennifer at FirstGradeBlueSkies)
I didn't give them any tracers. They just rounded the corners. I was very impressed with how they turned out.......Well, most of them!
I seriously debated posting this picture, but I know you all can relate! Oiy. When he was done, he said, "Aw, man, part of his eye is covered up." Bless his heart!
We used the writing prompt from Simply Sprout and attached them on the back.
We did this activity the morning our guest reader came for Read Across America Day. Our scheduled guest reader got tied up so we had an extra special guest reader step in.....one of our Kindergarten teachers! The kids were super excited. They thought she was better than a celebrity!
Next up...Yertle the Turtle! I think these turned out super cute!
I gave each student a piece of tissue paper. They cut out the rectangles/squares themselves and then put diluted glue on the plate with paint brushes. We had a LONG talk about not touching the tissue paper with our fingers after it had been stuck on. We did not need to look like Smurfs!
Next week we are doing Horton Hatches the Egg. That is my FAVORITE Dr. Seuss book and I always read it around Easter.
