Good morning Primary 1! Happy Jeudi!

This week we have been focusing on the fairy tale story ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and for our writing activity we were looking at the story from the wolf’s perspective. Did anyone manage to create a fun alternative ending to the story? We would love to see some examples of your work on the learning journals! This morning we would like to challenge you to create your own mask for the big bad wolf to add to your story. Perhaps you could even act out your story while wearing the wolf mask!

For this activity you will need:

  • a paper plate
  • white, black and brown card (or tissue paper)
  • glue
  • scissors
  • stapler
  • string

Instructions to create your own big bad wolf mask:

First cut your brown tissue paper (or card) into small squares (this is great for practicing your cutting skills!)
Take your paper plate and put a good amount of glue all over it. Place the tissue paper on top of the glue, until the paper plate is completely covered.
Cut out circles for the eyes – two large white circles and two smaller black circles for the pupils (or alternatively you could ask an adult to cut out eye holes so you can see when you wear your mask!)

Then cut out two pointy ears using brown card.

Next cut out your long snout using brown card and add a small black circle for the nose at the end.

Then add some sharp teeth by cutting out rectangles out of white card.

Glue all of the facial features onto your wolf.
Finally, staple some string to your wolf mask, making sure that the length of the string will fit snugly around your head.
Then display proudly!
