Another Freebie and a Give-A-Way!

Hey Ladies!! 

Alright, I'm posting the final part to my beginning of the year All About writing craftivity. This is super easy peasy and can be done in 1st-4th grades. Here is the final part. Have your students create themselves out of the patterns. I show my kids how to glue the head onto whatever color hair they want and just trim around it to add some easy peasy hair. Although, my kids usually get way creative and have a blast with the hair and other details. ;)

I always glue or staple the kids pages onto one those large pieces of construction paper (the 12 by 18 inch ones). Then I hang them up as one big piece. See pics below...

I glued my head on brown paper then trimmed around it to make my hair.

Here's a finished example. I glued my head on the shoulders and covered the corners with the hands. Sorry the pic is dark, I took it from my phone while Jackson was napping and I didn't want to dare turn on the lights!

If you didn't download the brainstorming and publishing pages, they are in my last two posts.  You can pick up the craft pages here.

Okie dokie, now for the Give-A-Way! I'm sure you all know that Google Reader is going away so make way for Bloglovin'! If you haven't transferred your blog reading list over, do it now! It's super easy. Once you setup your account, they even give you a list of recommendations based on the list of blogs you already have. I found a whole bunch of new blogs I had never even heard of. And the more blogs you have on your list, the more awesome ideas you'll come across, of course!
