DLTK's Educational Activities
February Bulletin Board Project
"I'm So Smart!"
This theme can be used throughout the year, but I like the "love
yourself for Valentine's Day" tie in.
These ones all look the same because I used the one Kaitlyn made to put together the layout. When you actually do it, they'll have different hair colors and likely clothing colors too.
The children will write an "I'm So Smart!" poem and glue that to the stomach of a paper craft of themselves for this "All About Me" themed bulletin board. This theme can be combined with some discussion about loving yourself and being proud of your talents and skills.
Additional educational activities for PreK and Kindergarten: Learn about circles and rectangles (the bodies are made mainly of circles and rectangles). Learn the color Red (you can choose to make all of the bodies red. Complimentary Resources not shown on the layout: Circle shapes buddy, Robbie the Rectangle shapes buddy, Rosie Red colors buddy
Additional educational activities for Grades 1 and 2: Learn about poetry -- five Line Poems resources at KidZone Poetry. There is also the option of typing the poem on the computer to build basic computer word processing skills.
Additional Sunday School theme: Tie the "I'm So Smart!" theme into a Joseph and His Coat of Many Colors lesson plan featuring the children's talents.
Directions and Links:
|Cover the bulletin board with pink (or white).|
Have the children:
- Complete their "I'm So Smart!" poetry projects.
- Sunday School Version: Tie in with a message similar to "This week we learned about
Joseph and his coat of many colors from Genesis 37. We learned that we all
have special talents and that its important not to want other's talents; but
to be happy with what God gave especially to us." When designing the craft,
you can have the children color the body different colors (to make each on an
individual coat of many colors).
Tape the completed projects onto the bulletin board.
