I just LOVE fall, and fall bulletin boards are fun to make! So when I saw this project that Hadar from Miss Kindergarten made with these scarecrows and crows, I just couldn’t resist! I love the way it turned out, so I thought I would share it with you here. You can pick it up in her TPT store. No, she didn’t twist my arm or ask me to share this with you; I just decided to do it myself!
We only made one of the crows, and we decided to use white stickers rather than have the children cut out the white circles. I also really prefer to give children squares and rectangles and have them cut off the corners to make circles and ovals, so we did that rather than xerox her masters for most of it. We did use the masters she provided for the hat and the hands, feet, and cuffs, though, since those are not circles or ovals.
It’s really nice that this project creates a frame for the children’s writing, since we are supposed to always display the children’s writing now and it seems to be a big “push.” I do like to decorate for the seasons, and Hadar has “promised me” that she will continue to make some seasonal writing frames that I can use to display our work. I would love to make them myself, but I am doing so much traveling and presenting these days that I seem to always be running out of time for this sort of thing.
We used our own paper and wrote about fall, because that’s what we were studying these days.
I love the way each of the crows and scarecrows seem to have their own expressions! It is just too hilarious!
Be sure to visit Hadar’s TPT store to pick up this nice little $3.00 project!
