Thursday was my last day until Jan. 3rd (doing the happy dance)! But here’s a quick idea my students loved. The inspiration come from Mrs. Carroll at The First Grade Parade.
We read the book There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell,
and after I asked the students to list some Christmas treats she could swallow besides a bell. They turned out great!
I don’t have the patterns to share..but I did include the clipart I used. I just traced the hair, face and mouth onto three separate pieces of copy paper, then copied them onto construction paper. We added the glasses and eyes and that was it. One of my students commented “She doesn’t look that old” then decided… “maybe she dyes her hair like my grandma.” Gotta love it!
