Magazine clipping and then let the child expand the picture. This would make a great (less mess) art project for the kids.
Start with a magazine or newspaper clipping and let the child expand the picture! This would be cool as a writing prompt!
"Expand an image" start off a child's drawing with a small magazine or photo image... and let them take off! Turn the image into a writing prompt! - this is great with an imaginative kid.
Start with a magazine or newspaper clipping and let the child expand the picture. This could be a great story starter!
An art project to teach children to use their imagination. Cut out part of an image from a magazine or newspaper & attach it to a blank sheet of paper and let the child expand the picture. Kids weren't nearly as into this as I thought they''d be. They did create a couple of really neat pictures, though.
This game is VERY simple but powerful for the kids because it helps them to make those connections that 5 pennies = 1 nickel, 2 nickels = 1 dime, etc...

how to make a cardboard loom/ weaving -- this is awesome!

KhanAcademy: All of the site's resources are available to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years. The Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge. Check out over 3,100 video lessons and practice activities...you are never too old for learning!
Khan Academy, free education on all sorts of topics. Great for kids in school, a reminder for those out of school for a while or just ready to learn something new.

Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire. #inspire heroes.compasslearning.com
'Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire' - wonderful words from WB Yeats
