Seeing this project made my heart melt. This is a craft I saw in a kindergarten class. It’s a paper roller-coaster! The teacher talked about primary colors and then let them use strips of colored construction paper to build roller-coasters! They used card stock for the base and regular white glue to build the coaster. I just love it!
I took these pictures a few days after they did the project, so the paper isn’t as strong and got kinda floppy. Sorry!
Here’s a great way to arrange 12 partner options for each student BEFORE you need it! Print this page on a sheet of colored card stock (so it’ll last the entire semester/year). Tell students to make an appointment with 12 different people (one for each hour on the clock). Be sure they both record the appointments on their clocks. Tell students they can only make the appointment if there is an open slot at that hour on both of their clocks. Then when you need to do partner work, you can call out “10 o’clock buddy!” and everyone will know who to go work with.
Here’s a cool idea I saw recently: After learning all about the different land forms in the US, one teacher had each kid make a map of the USA using permanent marker on a tortilla and then adding marshmallows, Twizzlers, brown sugar and frosting. Cool, huh!?
