Junk Mail Cut Outs

20130711-183214.jpg
I like the idea of the whole class or small groups working together, searching, cutting & then pasting to create class displays.

Draw up a big letter or number, or write the focus topic in the centre of a large piece of paper. Hand out magazines* & have the students search, cut & glue onto the chart.

You could get the kids to hunt for:
Numbers
Letters
Words that have a particular sound in them
Colours (create a rainbow display)
Contractions
Punctuation marks (!?,”;)
Pronouns
Synonyms for “said”
Conjunctions/joining words (and, but, when, or, so…)

*Just a note about using magazines in the classroom….Try to avoid gossip or fashion magazines because they often have inappropriate content for little ones! Most junk mail, travel, food & house magazines are safe though.
