I have this amazing and super creative co-teacher in kindergarten. She get’s all the credit for this idea. I saw it hanging outside her door and had to copy.
Cutting and pasting requires a lot of front loading in kindergarten, especially this early in the school year. I demonstrated on the document camera how to cut 10 petals, glue and paste them on the black square. We discussed how each one would turn out different and that is what would make them all beautiful.
I warned them that I wouldn’t help them cut it, they had to do it themselves.
They did a really good job!
