Miss Eberhard's class created frogs. The frogs were super cute and super easy! Every child drew one large oval for the body. Then they drew 8 smaller ovals for the legs, little finger ovals, half circles for the eyes and cute shapes for the tongue. They cute out the shapes, arranged the frog any way they wanted and glued it all down. We added details with a sharpie.
To make the kite, we had each child cut triangles from a template, then cut each triangle in half and share half with a friend so they could end up with 4 different colors in their kite. The mirror image got us in trouble. Next time, we will tell the children to make their kite and then have everyone share the RIGHT half pieces! We had kids sharing the left side and then trading it for a right side and it didn't always work out. The children had trouble visualizing how the kite would go back together and it got complicated! Miss Zirker and I were running around trying to help the children put all the pieces back together so it actually looked like a kite. I will do better if we ever do it again!
