Beautiful kids crafts and project. Create the trunks in peace and lay out the colours for each one, then the kids can go to work, and you can add the finshing touches (like owls etc) when they are fast asleep! A family masterpiece
Spelling Use a small chalkboard and write the classes sight words. Then use a small eraser and have the students overlap the words written in chalk. Works on their motor skills needed to write the words and practices their spelling.
Shape monsters---can incorporate shapes, vertices and adjectives all in one. Have the kids create their shape monster then describe it using math vocabulary and adjectives. They could write how many of each shape that was used to make the monster.
