I printed the acorn top and bottom on cardstock and had kids color them in and cut them out. Then I punched holes along the adjoining edges and had them lace together with yarn:
You could modify this activity for pretty much any target:
- Articulation: Write sound on the top portion and have students brainstorm words to write on the bottom.
- Categorization: Write a category on the top and have students brainstorm members of that category to write on the bottom.
- Describing: Write a word at the top. Have students write describing words on the bottom. OR...
- EET: Write a target vocabulary word on the top. Use your EET stickers along the bottom and have students follow the strand to describe the word.
