As much as I love the hands-on activities and crafts in our My Father’s World Kindergarten Curriculum, I was not very good about doing the Words to Remember badges with my daughter. So, I came up with something a little different for the boys. I created printable art/copywork pages for them to work on their penmanship while creatively depicting the Words to Remember. It was a hit!
This is one of our Lesson 18: Zz Zebra pages. First, the boys completed the copywork at the bottom of the page and then they began the craft portion of the activity.
- zebra coloring page from DLTK
- copy paper
- black paint
- MFW Words to Remember printable
1) Print the zebra coloring page on copy paper and cut. (We cut out our zebras first, but in hindsight, I think we should have cut the zebra out at the end of the project after the paint dried!)
2) Tape the backside of the zebra onto the base of the box.
3) Squeeze the black paint into the base of the box and drop in a few marbles.
4) Now the fun part! Move and shake the box so that the marble rolls around in the paint and adds stripes onto the zebra.
5) Let the zebras dry and then glue them to the copywork pages.
PLEASE NOTE: These copywork printables are only for students who are reading and writing easily. This type of copywork is not a regular part of the My Father’s World Kindergarten curriculum.
