Thanks to http://paintedpaperintheartroom.blogspot.com/ a wonderful website with great ideas I found this woodland house lesson idea. I see over 200 second graders at this school so I don't have the storage room to store the stand up houses but we stapled them to the blue background paper and then added some details. I told the students that when I was in school there was a cereal called "Freakys", (growing up in the 70's) Anyway, it came with a plastic monster and I would collect them with my friends and we made houses in the yard for them. I even remembered the jingle and sang a bit for them. The next week I heard a student singing it! We started by stamping doors, windows and siding on the yellow paper then stamping a roof. The following week we used Craypas for color. Today we assembled our houses and added details.
