Something a little different for a “New Year’s Center”
#elemchat #spedchat ##artchat #mathchat #sschat
OK…I know that we haven’t even had Christmas yet (and our much needed winter break) and I’m already thinking about the new year. Ummm…the Chinese New Year! Celebrated in January it’s the perfect theme for my writing center.
I wanted to create something a little different this year for a New Year’s writing activity so I created this cute “Fortune Cookie Creation Station”. It’s a neat writing/craft center where students create fortune cookies with their own fortunes hidden inside. I’m suggesting they create their own inspirational/motivational quotes.
I thought it would be neat to make a bowl of these and put in the office for school visitors to enjoy as well as pass some out to our classroom visitors. Maybe some could be sent to a nursing home or hospital. Lots of ways to share these.
What’s included you ask? Everything you need to make cute and colorful fortune cookies.
- Full instructions for center activity
- “How to Make a Paper Fortune Cookie” direction sheet with step-by-step instructions and photos
- Blank fortune strips
- 18 fortune strips with motivational/inspirational fortunes
- 2 center direction cards
- 15 colorful/patterned circles to create cookies
- Fortune Cookie Creation Station sign
Students will love the fact that they are putting smiles on the faces of people who receive them. I will love seeing those smiles on my students.
Great for a math/art activity as well as a social studies lesson.
I hope you check out my “Fortune Cookie Creation Station” and while you’re there please follow me so you are updated when I post new products. Thanks!
