P is for Pencil: Paper Pasting Activity

P is for Pencil: Paper Pasting Activity from The Teaching Aunt

Let’s have a party for our next featured letter- P is for Pencil: Paper Pasting Activity!

Pencil is probably one of the most used supplies in the classroom. You can use it for tracing, writing and drawing. It’s truly indispensable.

But aside from its regular function (which is for writing), it would also be good to use it for other things such as counting (use them as counters), building (use it in place of Legos) and decorating (for bulletin boards and big projects), etc…

Using it other than its intended purpose helps children learn to be creative and resourceful. They will have an idea that a pencil is not limited to writing and drawing. 

In my classroom, I’ve seen my students use/play with pencils as chopsticks, fishing pole and billiard sticks. It’s such a joy to see them working on their imagination as well as their writing skills.

My other hope is that they not only see that objects can be used other than its usual purpose and there are a lot of possibilities, but that they also see themselves as being limitless. They can be whoever they want to be. 

How about you? Can you think of other ways to use a pencil? Would you also want your child to think of herself as limitless? How can you help her develop that thinking?
