A FREE Kwanzaa Craftivity

Here is a cute creativity just for you!

Click the image to see the FREE download.
Here is a great way to introduce your students to the 7 principles of Kwanzaa and create an easy craft project.

You can teach all of these skills with this simple creativity:

-color words red, green, and black
-counting & cardinality (count the red candles, count the green candles, count all of the candles)
-subitizing (subitize the red candles, subitize the green candles)
-addition (add the red candles, green candles, and black candle)
-greater than, less than, & equal sets (Are there more or less red candles than black candles?  Are
 there any equal sets of candles?)
-fine motor skills (cutting, pasting)
-sequence and ordering (glue the candles to create the pattern of 3 reds, 1 black, 3 reds)
-shapes (rectangle)
-1:1 correspondence (there is one flame for each candle)

Here Is How To Create It:

If you copy the last 2 pages of the download, you can print them on white card stock or construction paper.

Your students should cut out the 7 principles and glue one to each candle.

Then, they color the candles to match the color words written on them.

They should color the 7 flames and add them to the top of each candle.

Then, they cut and glue the candles (in order: 3 reds, 1 black, 3 greens) to the brown rectangle base.

The base is just a 12" X 4.5" rectangle of brown construction paper.

Enjoy and have fun with this FREEBIE.  :)

You might also like:
Ask your students if they would rather be a reindeer,
an elf, a gingerbread man, or a snowman.
The reasons they give you will make you laugh.  

Each child will have a different opinion
about which character they would rather be!  
See ya all tomorrow!
