Do You Have A Hat?
After finding the book, Do You Have a Hat?, at Deep Space Sparkle, my first graders went to town! I spent a bundle at Michael's on foam shapes, shape punches, stamps and stamp pads, feathers, pom poms etc. Students used hat tracers,painted them with watercolor and left them to dry the first class. This was after I had read them the story. The next class they got to use all of the goodie's I had purchased to add pizazz to their hats. I created boy and girl tracers for them to use on 18x24" manila paper. After drawing and coloring their vision of themselve's on their paper, we attached the hats with a little glue and voila'! Yes, we have hats!
