Father's Day Crafts

Father's-Day-Crafts

Happy Father's Day to all dads, granddads, uncles, and male teachers! 

These are just  few of the crafts we made yesterday. The shirt-card with the collar, tie and pocket was chosen for my first graders because it is simple. I had to pre-fold the sheets to form the cards for them, then I gave each child a pair of rectangles for the collar, a kite shape for the tie, and a diamond shape for the knot. They glued these down in the order given then added the pockets. I would recommend using pre-cut 8.5 x 11 card-stock for the cards and glitter foam sheet cut-outs for the shapes. I use a guillotine to speed up the cutting process.

 My son made the Steel Pan at his school. It was too cool not to share! Look at the pan sticks, they are match sticks... cute! It is also made of hard card-stock for the pan shape and base, and foam sheet cut-outs for the notes.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
