This project is a work in progress, since I currently have no color ink to print this poster. So I apologize for the less than stellar picture of the tree graphic. (A dual apology for the lousy picture of the Jeopardy headings, given aforementioned lack of ink)
I love having options of choosing helpers and songs. Every kid wants a turn, and every song review can be spiced up by turning into a 10-layer ice cream cone, building a hamburger, filling a jar with jelly beans, etc.
Here is the tree (here is the download of the tree):
And on this tree you can put popcorn or apples. I am working on some other things, and will post them as they finish.
You can label the popcorn and apples with each child's name, and draw them out of a jar/can/etc. Then stick them to the tree, and pretty soon your tree will be full of children who've already had a turn. When the tree is full, use a different seasonal graphic (apples for fall, popcorn for spring, etc.)
Hints on the tree:
This graphic is actually formatted to print on 8 pages as a poster. I intend on sticking it to a posterboard and laminating it, then laminating the little graphics so I can use them over and over again. Here is how I think you can get it to print in the 8-page format and not on one single sheet of paper. If you can't get it to print from Google Docs, send me an email or leave a comment and I can email you the PDF and you can try printing directly from that.
OK, here is what you can try:
Once you have downloaded the PDF, click File > Print
Under the printer settings, see if you have a function called Page Scaling
If you do, select "tile all pages"
This should convert it back to the 8-page format
I hope you can get it to work!
