word that the crown is meant to reinforce! For example, although you will use the term "fuzz of was"
when talking about the crown ("Go and look at the fuzz of
was" ) do not write "Fuzz of was" on the crown. Write only the word "was" using print which models the
print you'd like the children to use!
Many thanks to Tony Roda, art director of Weber Advertising and Marketing. Tony's mom is a teacher in Lancaster, PA. Tony created new Kid Crown images for his mom and for Kid Writing teachers everywhere.
Tony recommends that you copy the images individually, by right clicking, then copying. You can then paste them onto Claris, Word, Print Shop and other similar programs.
To make simple Kid Crowns, simply print out and glue each image onto a 4 or 5 inch wide strip of construction paper, long enough to fit around the children's heads and stapled at the ends.
Please remember to introduce the crowns gradually - not all at once. You may also find it helpful to send home miniature copies of the pictures with each child as they are introduced.
