Folded Paper Bookmarks

image
My year 2s made these folded paper bookmarks on Friday.   We followed the directions found on this page: http://www.ctbakerintheacres.com/2012/02/14-lovely-days-day-2.html I made some examples to show them first. These would be handy to have on hand in your relief teaching folder too! All you need is paper, scissors, and pencils for decorating. There is no need for photocopied templates which makes it easy. They had to really read and follow the directions carefully but they were all able to make them by themselves. I think they did a fantastic job!  

Paper Elephant Craft

"Too Many Elephants in This House" CLEVER CRAFT The Children's Book Council of Australia will be announcing the Books of the Year next month. On the Early Childhood shortlist is the fun picture book "Too Many Elephants in This House" by Ursula Dubosarsky & Andrew Joyner. You can view the book here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iR2vOBTWVNw While searching for an elephant craft to go with this book I found this YouTube clip (link below) of a super cute elephant craft. You only need paper, glue, scissors & either googly eyes or a black texta to draw eyes. Love it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rv-IbAZozs&feature=youtube_gdata_player
