I like the lucky ducky ducks, the grouchy lady bug art, and the tshirts to display student writing. Can you post directions on how you utilized each and the template and directions to make them. -Mary
Thank you for your comment. The Lucky Ducks template came from the DLTK website. We were working on farm animals and we were learning about ducks. The students were able to decorate these ducks the way they wanted to.
The Grouchy Ladybug went with our Eric Carle author study. We discussed feelings and I took each child's picture with a grumpy face. They cut them out and added to their ladybug. The students also wrote about feeling grouchy and how they feel better. There is no pattern for these. I just drew a circle and added a half circle for the head. The wings were just the same size circel except cut in half. The students traced these from my patterns. During this time of the year we were working on telling time. This is a great book for teaching time with the clocks on every page. The students had to find matching clocks and times to glue onto their wings.
Because I do not have much display space in my classroom, I use the T-shirts to help display student work. I got this idea from a former colleage. It is a large T-shirt made from posterboard that the students paint. I put paper clips through slits to hang student work. This is a colorful display even in between diplaying work.
