I like to copy the base of the broom on yellow card stock. Then, I use my classroom paper cutter to precut the brown construction paper for the handle of the broom. The students will be in charge of cutting out the curves and zig zags for the bristles of the broom.

Before beginning this Room on the Broom craft, I like to model some of the simple cuts the students will make, including the curves and zig zags for the bristles of the broom.

Once students cut out their broom base, I demonstrate how to attach the handle by overlapping the yellow onto the brown. Students, then, add their name and place their broomstick craft off to the side.

The next step is to color each of the retelling cards. We discuss coloring in the lines and using realistic colors to match each of the characters in the story.

As a dedicated Kindergarten teacher for nearly 20 years, I believe the words “fun, play, and creativity” can sit right alongside the words “developmentally appropriate, engaging, and rigorous.” Learning is meant to be fun and messy!
