Attending to instruction, focusing on details, intentionally remembering steps and working with others are skills that we can help our students develop over time with lots of practice.
I haven't met a student yet who didn't like making bunny ears:
White construction paper:
3 X 18 for the head band (plus extra strips to staple to the ends to accommodate larger heads)
3 X 9 for each ear
Pink construction paper:
2 X 8 for each ear
1 X 1 to be cut diagonally for a triangle nose
Black construction paper:
1 X 3 (my kiddos folded this piece in half
to cut out two eyes at once)
Light tan construction paper:
3 X 3 to cut into whiskers
Though cute for spring and Easter, I used this activity to help my Stars develop their memory skills. After explaining that we'd be using our "remember-ers" (a term used by a former student), I showed and described each piece of paper to be used, and talked myself through making my own bunny headband as students watched. Reminding them that they'd need scissors and glue, I then sent them to their desks to see if they could make their own headbands.
"My remember-er is working!"
"Here, I'll let you use mine."
SuperMom strikes again! Cake rolls, bunny Peeps, mini-pretzels and Junior Mints made the cutest little rabbit-racers:
