|Craft ideas: |
Make colorful paper decorations, or Christmas pi?atas like the ones in La Perla.
What does "going home" mean to you? Draw/ write.
Draw a picture of your family, and write about what you like about being at home.
*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions.
You can use them, but you don’t have to use them.
You can expand upon them, or add your own twist.
Remember, though, that the focus of your time should
not be on the development and execution of a craft;
the focus should be on the read-aloud and the
enjoyment of the book!
