Paper Chains and Paper Rope are reading activities that:

(a) give you some simple ideas for decorating your classroom to fit in with the Christmas theme.

Choose the level of activity that is suitable for the children in your class.

(b) integrate reading, comprehension, following written instructions, following instructions given

in the form of a diagram,  mathematics, art/craft, social studies (traditions)

and problem solving skills.

(c) help in the development of fine motor skills.

(d) allow each child to work at his/her individual level of development.

(e) give children practise at working cooperatively with a partner.

The activities are presented as separate units so each one can be used individually if desired.

Using work sheets to give the children instructions for completing a given task and ticking the box as each section is completed provides multiple benefits:

Some of these benefits I have found are:

  • reading is integrated with other subject areas.
  • the children are reading for a purpose.
  • the children are kept on task.
  • it gives the children valuable practise at reading and following instructions.
  • comprehension skills are enhanced.
  • the child is encouraged to work independently.
  • children are taught the value of completing each stage of a task correctly before moving onto the next stage.
  • the child is taught to be methodical
  • the child experiences a sense of achievement and pride in his/her work.
  • it allows the child to evaluate his/her own work.
