Day of the Dead Colouring Sheets, Pages, Banners, Pennants - Inspirational Quotes

Day of the Dead Colouring Sheets, Pages, Banners, Pennants - Inspirational Quotes

These Day of the Dead quote colouring pennants are a wonderfully relaxing resource for your students! Colouring and displaying these banners are a fantastic way of celebrating the Day of the Dead and are a comfort to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. I’m a big advocate for colouring therapy for students and adults, and I already have quite an extensive collection of different quote colouring pages available in my store! They are wonderfully relaxing and especially effective for growth mindset as all quotes are inspirational and positive! Not only are these Day of the Dead quote colouring pennants ideal for decorating your classroom, but you’ll be amazed at the wonders it can do just by giving students a few minutes to wind down and relax by coloring. There are 10 different quotes to choose from! Students can just shade in using whatever colours make them happy, but there is also some white space available for them to add their own doodles too! So take a few minutes celebrating Day of the Dead in your lesson, during a morning meeting, indoor break, or give to early finishers, and let your students wind down and colour while reflecting on positive quotes about dealing with the loss of a loved one. Help your students build resilience and be all they can be. So take a few minutes during the Day of the Dead celebrations to get students in the right frame of mind by colouring in positive quotes about dealing with grief, then tie string through the pennants and decorate your classroom!

Shapes Cutting Practice

Shapes Cutting Practice

I use this sheet on the first day of school for little kids like Reception or Year 1. It's a great way to gain insight on their motor skills. Students simply colour in the shapes, cut them out and then stick them into their sketchbooks. They can even label the shapes, or try to redraw the shapes. This way you can see how well they're writing and recognising their shapes. For more First Day activities and lessons visit FeedingStickFigures.com

Brown Synonyms 1&2 Wordsearch Art Colours Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Brown Synonyms 1&2 Wordsearch Art Colours Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

3 x Wordsearch on the theme of 'Brown Synonyms'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
