Friends~We are beginning to come close to the end of our Fairy Tale unit and our study of The Wonderful Wizard of OZ. I was trying to come up with a way for my students to earn something just like Dorothy and the Gang do at the end of the story. I decided that I would have them earn pieces that represented the wants of the characters in the story.
I created a Story Souvenir for The Wizard of OZ. To create this for your students you will need a bag of Smarties Candies, a bag of marshmallow hearts, and a metal. (I ordered my metals on Oriental Trading but I have seen them at the $ Stores:) Here is a shot of my candy loot below. You can even see the Big Lots tag-HA!
My plan is to slide 2 Smarties, a marshmallow heart and a metal in a baggie and attach the souvenir sheet below to the outside. I am going to encourage my students to take it home and explain what each piece means to the story before they munch on the goodies. I of course will allow them some smarties as I explain the directions:)
