FREE Shoe Printable Craft

20130630-205853.jpg

Print off on card for students to decorate & colour. Use wool or string to lace up.

If you have a junior class see if you can buddy up with an older class so they can help the little ones lace & practice tying up the shoes.

You can find the original source & printable here:

Jigsaw Pairs

zzjigsaw picture

There are so many things you could do with these! Here’s a few ideas:
– lower case/upper case letter matching
– sight words
– antonyms
– synonyms
– math sums
– shape names & pictures
– analogue/digital time
– subject area questions & answers

I’ve also handed out blank sheets of these to older kids to make up their own revision questions before a test. After writing the questions & answers on the pairs they cut them out, put the pieces into an envelope & swapped with another student to complete.

When making your own puzzles you can either add your own print using text boxes, print onto card & then cut out OR print them off blank & laminate so they can be changed to suit your needs. If you need more than 14 pairs you can print another sheet on different coloured card.

You could probably find some better quality jigsaw pairs than these ones I made using just Paint! But you are more than welcome to print them off onto some card & use if you would like to. 🙂

A Duck Craft That Really Quacks!

duck quacker

So we tested out making one of these yesterday. It works! & so cute!
I wouldn’t always keep the supplies for this craft in my Relief Bag but instead have them on hand if I ever get an early morning phone call to come in for a junior class.
This craft matches up really well with the 5 Little Ducks Song & also these picture books:
-‘Quack! Daisy, Quack!’ by Jane Simmons
-‘Splat the Cat & the Duck with no Quack’ by Rob Scotton
-‘Duck on a Bike’ by David Shannon

Here are the instructions: http://preschoolbookclub.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/five-little-ducklings.html?m=1
More specific instructions on making it quack:
