CRAFTS AND READING – PART 1
By
Linda M. Penn
 
            I bet I know what some of you are thinking just from reading the title of the Blog –Oh no!  She’s going to pile more on my plate.  Not only does she want me to try to read with my kids every day – now she wants me to do a craft too?
 
            The answer to that question is “yes” and “no”.
 
YES, here are the reasons I recommend doing a craft after reading the kiddos:
 
1)    Can increase the enjoyment of the whole reading experience.
2)    Aids the child in remembering the story.
3)    Instills pride in the child for making something with his/her own hands.
4)    Promotes creativity.
5)    Can help with the development of fine motor skills.  Ex. – using pencils, crayons, scissors, glue, etc.
 
NO, here are the reasons I suggest avoiding making a craft after reading:
 
1)    If there is a limited amount of time for the whole reading experience.
2)    If you or your child is overly stressed from the day’s events.
3)    If you don’t have any craft materials on hand.
4)    If you don’t have any ideas on what to make.
5)    In my opinion, the most important reason - IF YOU EXPECT THE CRAFT TO BE PERFECT AND LOOK JUST LIKE THE PICTURE IN THE CRAFT BOOK.  Please stop – remember the reading experience is supposed to be fun!  No fussing with the kiddos, okay?
 
NEXT MONTH – See you the first week of April – Next Blog – CRAFTS AND READING PART 2.  I will give you some suggestions on how to keep crafts fun and simple, even if you think you are not a “crafty” person.
 
Hope you will be experiencing some warm weather this month – Happy Spring and Happy Spring Break!  YOUR COMMENTS WELCOME!  WILL YOU “LIKE” ME ON FACEBOOK?  THANKS!!!!!!
