I have a mixed group of children in my class.
In order to get them chatting and enjoying each other’s company i put them into 4 groups.
3 kids to each poster. The idea is to draw yourself and be part of the whole class.
What we used:
Large sheets of white sturdy card.
Lots of different coloured paper
Wool, Buttons, Scraps
Scissors and Glue
What we did:
1.Choose a colour
2.Draw yourself. Your whole body, arms legs, clothes, everything.
3.Cut out your person.
4.Draw around your hand and cut out.
5.Glue all the people and hands onto the large card.
6.Add woolly hair,buttons,ribbon.
The children sat on the floor around the card.
They have to interact…where’s the black pen?
Passing paper or glue pots around etc.
In the beginning they were somewhat shy but
by the time they were gluing there was endless chatter.
