Classroom Crafts

As with all crafts, be sure to make one for your self in advance of teaching. Students love to help - ask a student to be responsible for sharp pencils, clean desk, and tidying up glue sticks and so on. Use the same clear English instructions in each lesson. For young leaners try "Please pass me one piece of square red paper that is next to yellow scissors".

  6. Firetruck / Fire Engine.
  7. Police car.
  8. Rocket (or as my students insist on calling it a Super Jet Rocket Space Car !).
  9. Ship.
  10. Steam train.

Preparation

  • Simply printing off a number of templates for the class, letting students choose which one is best.
  • Model how to make any one of them and students will be able to then independently make any vehicle they choose.

Materials per student

  • Car, Bus and Train template.
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick.
  • x2 Wheels per vehicle. A toilet roll cut into strips or a strip of craft paper rolled up twice and stapled. Then cut half way through the centre to make a slot that will support the vehicle.

Materials for the class

  • Cover tables with plastic sheets or large bin bags.
  • Ink pads.
  • Wet wipes - less messy for the school as a whole than having the students running back and forth between the class and bathroom every time they change inkpads.
  • The children should have no need to leave their seats during the craft.
  • Transport Songs: The Ride It Song by The Magic Crayons. Lyrics are Train, Car, Bus, Bicycle, Airplane.

To make

  • Print the template onto thick A4 paper. When folded in half it should be rigid.
  • Colour the Train. We used inkpads. Crayons, glitter, pencils etc are just as suitable.
  • Turn over, glue, fold in half.
  • Cut out the Train.
  • Add 2 wheels.

Tips

  • As with all crafts, make one yourself first before presenting it to the class.
  • Allow time after the craft has been made for the children to play with their new toys.

    Amazing handy tool! It easily removes the staple from high up on the wall then catches the staple so it doesn't fall to the clasroom floor. Game changer.
