Objective: Children will write about a trip to space and create personalized artwork to go with their writing.
Materials: colored construction paper, glue, crayons or markers, Name Rocket Writing templates, pencils
- Give children squares of construction paper (squares can be different colors) and a paper triangle. Have them write a letter of their name on each square of paper.
- On another sheet of construction paper, have children paste the squares in order to spell their name, and then glue the triangle on top. For the bottom, kids can draw or cut out ﬁ ns (side triangles), and draw ﬂ ames to make their rocket look like it’s blasting off!
- Finally, give each child a writing template and have kids complete the sentences. They can cut out the box and paste it next to their rocket, or attach it beneath. (SKILL: L.1.1 Conventions of English when writing)
