Tuesday we made a Thankerchief--a game of passing around a "thankerchief" and taking turns saying what we are thankful for. This activity taught us things we are thankful for, worked on our speaking skills, following multi-step directions, and fine motor skills when decorating our "thankerchief." Students were given a white piece of fabric (we had a white sheet in our art closet my principal gave me permission to cut up. I have also see the activity done where students can all bring in their own white piece of fabric. We then decorated them however they thought was beautiful with the bingo dotters. They then colored the poem. I then applied the poem to a toilet paper tube wrapping the while thing in packing tape. (I thought it would help with the grease and helping it last longer). We practiced the game in school so students knew how and so they could take it home and teach their families with my Thankerchief I had made. When all were dry, I put together and sent home with them.
