Children trace their hand on the paper and write their name. Teacher sits with the child and talks with them, writing notes along all the fingers such as : * their age * something about their family * friends' names * pets * favorite activity * favorite color * and what ever else is important to the child
Children draw a picture and teacher writes what the child says about the picture. We store them in a box and get them out at the end of the year. At the end of the year, we give it back to the child. The children get excited to see how they used to draw and how much their hands have grown. Parents enjoy it too and it's a simple way to see their child's progress throughout the year. Most of our parents keep them as a treasured memory.
Each weekday we will publish an easy craft for kids.
