Investing in the Neighborhood School ~#3
Trying to find ideas for a 1st grade full of 25 children that I can explain in Turkish and is 10 liras or less was a little tougher for me this time. However thankfully I was graced with an idea.
I wanted to remind the kids that we as individuals are truely unique, each of us with our own special fingprint and yet each of us as humans alike in so many other ways.
|We talked about our body, becasue it shows how much we are alike and yet how differnt we are.|
We sang the song head and shoulders knees and toes in English with the actions and they LOVED it.
|I shared fun facts like: we have about 206 bones in our bodies and approx. 5 liters of blood. Also this is when we talked about how each finger print (parmak izi) is differnt and unique, and how each of them are each unique and special.|
|The goal was for each child to make paper dolls of themselves. We then went around the room and took their fingerprints that they then glued on back with their name and date.|
We did this as a reminder of their own uniqueness.
|Here they are making and showing off their paper dolls. My daughter is in the bottom left corner. :)|
Each child recieved:
A paper doll
Set of paper clothes
Half a sheet of colored construction paper
Small white piece of paper for finger print
Each child brought:
(some kids do not bring their items so I always have things on hand and encourge lots of sharing with seat partners)
For the finger prints:
I brought a small water bottle of water, paintbrush and some water paints for the finger prints. I used the brush in the water bottle to wet the black paint and then had the kids wipe their fingers with a wet wipe after we took their print.
