Circle Dog Craft -
Shapes, Scissor Skills, Colors, and Counting Practice
This craft can be used to teach a variety of skills. You don't
have to use all the thoughts for lessons... just choose the ones you're
working on with your child. There is a second template with a body
that you can optionally use.
Thoughts for Lessons:
- This craft has lots of circles to cut out -- good scissor
- You can precut the template into separate pieces (roughly) to make
it a bit easier for beginning crafters to cut out the circles.
- Point out that the ears and mouth are half a circle.
- verbally instruct the children on how to assemble the shapes using
the colors of the shapes. (ie: Take the black circle and glue it
on the grey circle.).
- show the children two circles and ask -- is this one bigger, smaller
or the same size as that one.
- Glue the two large grey circles, slightly overlapping, on top of each other (sort of like a figure 8
Glue the last light grey circle under the other two as a muzzle.
Glue the two large half circles onto the edges of the head as ears.
Glue the small half circle mouth, the two eyes and
the small black circle (nose) onto the head.
Assembly Template 2:
- to make the body, glue the head you've completed from template 1
onto the large body
- glue the circle paws onto the bottom of the body
- glue the tail together from the largest circle to the smallest and
attach to the body
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to
zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE,
PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
