Good, Old-fashioned Cut and Paste! FREE!

I don’t know about you all, but keeping these kids engaged is a FEAT this time of year! Today is not only one of the last Mondays in the school year, it is also a full moon. If you have been in education for a while, you KNOW what that means!

So, in an attempt to keep them all engaged, I decided to dig deep and bring back a cut and paste activity they can color, cut, paste and LEARN from! I call this one Gumball Machine. It can be downloaded free from my TpT store HERE. I would also love to have you follow me there by clicking HERE.

There is a blank page in the download so that you can customize the activity to the language you teach and maybe some basic vocabulary you may want to include for review purposes.

There are several ways to extend this kind of activity. You can have students write sentences with the words, have them write a story using a certain number of the words, create a comic using the words, create a class survey using the words, find a meme that uses the words or a GIF that represents them, and the list goes on and on.

Hope this inspires you to get them talking and working and learning! I will have this and other sets of cut and paste activities up for sale on my TpT store, but you could certainly just use squares with simple drawings or pics you print. The key is to sail on into the summer with low stress and high engagement!

Happy Teaching!
