Name Monsters

I love pinterest, and I also am really loving Artsonia, the more and more I use it.  I came accross this project and decided it would be a great project for my 2nd graders.  We have a bit of time left over before the new  9 weeks starts, and we were able to practice cutting, gluing and craftsmanship, while also learning about symmetry.  Plus, my kids are already thinking Halloween, so monsters got their attention.  Basically, fold a paper the vertical, or long skinny way, and have students write their name so that the bottoms of the letters rest on the fold.  Then, students cut an outline around the shape of their name, creating a cool organic shape.  From there, the sky is the limit!
