Merry go round with shapes and words part 2

  Merry Go Round with Shapes and Words part 2
In my previous post Mary Go Round with Shapes and Words, I shared an idea of how to practice Spanish words using foam cups.  On this post I will share detailed information how I do it along with pictures for clarity.

So here are the steps:
1.    Take an 8 oz foam cup
2.    Holding the cup upside down draw a square half a inch below the top and a rectangle at the bottom right above the cup ring.

3.    Using a toothpick perforate along the line of the square and the rectangle.

4.    Use your finger to punch out the perforate areas.

5.    Place the perforated cup over another foam cup.

To ensure placing the pictures and words in the correct space on the second cup you can place the perforated cup over the second cup and with a pencil draw the outline of the areas perforated on the second cup as you rotate it to know exactly where to glue each picture and word.

And this is the result!

You can download the pages with the pictures and words for free here.

I appreciate your feedback and comments. Let me know how this activity worked for you. Share your experience and please "have fun! :)
