Our school is having mini-courses for the kids on three Mondays in May. I signed-up to do handmade card making mini-course with second, third, and fourth graders who are interested. I started creating samples over the weekend:
I’m debating how to structure the classes. Part of me wants the kids to just write their own cards, part of me wants to have the kids use the vellum and stickers I purchased, and then another part of me wants the kids to put poems in their cards. (Maybe I can have it all three ways!) Who knows!
Most likely I’ll blog about this more at Crafty Creations, so if you’re interested in seeing more of this as it evolves into something that doesn’t include much student writing, then check back in another week or so over at Crafty Creations.
