Do you do lots of crafts and craftivities in your classroom? Do the children trace patterns? Do you get frustrated when the patterns mysteriously disappear? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then, this blog post may be the answer to your dreams!
Here's what I've been doing this year to help keep track of all the patterns to my projects. I put them all in a separate baggie, along with the paper the children need to use for that pattern. I also label each pattern with what it is and the color it needs to be. I've taught the children to put the pattern back into the baggie once they are done using it. I am happy to say that they haven't lost any pattern (yet) this year. Try it! You won't be sorry!
Does this craftivity look familiar? I'm sure it does! It's from Caitlin's Apple Unit!
