My Diploma is nearly at it's end - I may have written a while back that I've unofficially finished my Diploma of Children's Services - I did that 2 months ago. Now I'm just waiting for my last few assignments to come back marked. Well today I got 3 back, and one of them was my little Maori Colour book that I created. It was for a Multicultural assignment that I had to make. I had so much fun making it, as I will be able to use it in my classroom when I return to work. It's all laminated and very durable for little hands. The book is based on a song that I was taught when I was in Primmer One in New Zealand (equivalent of Pre School or Prep). I gathered all my pictures from Google Images (awesome resource!)All I did was purchase some coloured card for each page, and then ran them through my printer to print the words. I printed out the pictures and journalled a little about each. So the book is not only good for learning colours, but Maori words, tradition, and places. I added ribbons cause kids love looking at shiny things and being able to feel things too! It also holds their attention while reading! Here's a look inside:
Okay so I'd love to upload all the other colours (red, green, black, yellow, orange, brown, blue) but blogger is playing games and uploading them wrong. But you get the idea.
I've loved crafting since the day I picked up a pair of safety scissors and cropped a square in my fringe. I was 2. Now I prefer to cut paper and cardboard and procraftinate with hot glue and Stickles instead of study my Bach of Early Ed! Thanks for joining me on my adventure!
I have created all of these items myself, please do not take pictures without my express permission.
I have received some of the products and images free to use on my products as a result of being part of a design team. I would not use them unless I knew them to be the best quality and from reputable sources. For more information on digi images and products used, click the links provided in each post.
