Angry Birds Craft for Practicing Shape, Color & Size

May 9, 2013 1 min read

My awesome speech therapist did this craft with my class this week!! And her assistant created and cut out all the pieces for us!!! Am I the luckiest or what?!!  I love Mrs. Dominguez and Mrs. Buchinoff!  (Whoa, probably too many exclamation points in this paragraph, but hey, there’s only a few weeks left of school and they really are the greatest.)

So this week we made the red angry bird.  See below for pieces used. Next week we will probably make the black one (so stay tuned).

After everyone had the pieces, the speech teacher had students hold up each type of piece (i.e. “Hold up the medium white circles. What part will those be?”)  This was also a great way to make sure everyone had all the pieces.

Next, she walked them through gluing on all the pieces, again making them use words to describe each piece.  Now we did have kids sit at three tables and each one had an adult to help out, which really helped, too.  And viola! Below is the final masterpieces!!
This morning I had the birds posted on the wall, and one of my kiddos reminded us all to not let any angry birds poop on us today!  Ha! I think I need to come with a writing activity to go with this!!
