Ask the class what kind of holiday greeting cards theyve seen
(not received, seen) what objects are typically on the cards
If the discussion from the introduction went long, dont
ask about what theyve seen, just ask what belongs on a
Christmas card.
Make note (on stickies or assessment passport) of
notable contributions to discussion: take stickies to the
front.
Show the class examples from Pinterest (pre-load the
webpage) and walk through the process of making several
examples (emphasize the simplicity of the process, and
how good the products look.
Classes will separate with a variety of cardstock supplies
and go to their separate rooms.
Students will work individually to construct a Christmas
card by cutting shapes into simple Christmas forms
(remind them of their Christmas word list if they cant
think of any Christmassy things) and gluing them onto a
folded sheet of cardstock.
Hand out one piece of cardstock to each student, and tell
them that they can trade with another student after they
have used their cardstock if they want to use a different
pattern of paper.
Model minimal use (cut a small square out of cardstock,
talk about how now someone else can use the same
pattern if they want to.)
Limit supplies, talk about waste and sharing of supplies
(supplies are very limited, add red, green, and white
cardstock to what we already have
Mark down student hand-ins on assessment passport, as
well as any additional observations made while cruising.
If students are done early they may make another card if
they would like.
Students will be given a ten minute warning at 15
minutes, clean up signal at five minutes left.
Have patterned cardstock divided into even piles (for each
class) beforehand
Have cardstock folded into greeting card format
beforehand.
