K is for Kangaroo Paper Craft Directions

  1. To make the body, draw a sort of beaker shape onto the paper. Draw two hand paws, two foot paws, a tail, a head with two ears, and a pouch. All parts of the kangaroo will fit on a single piece of paper. If you’re making this for a large group of kids, make one kangaroo template and then cut out about 5-6 pieces of paper at once. This will dramatically cut down on your prep time.

  2. Put all pieces in a bag for each kid. This will make things easier when craft time comes. As a variation, you can include four brads in each bag to make the kangaroo’s arms and legs move.
  3. Let the kids glue the parts of the kangaroo together except for the top of the pouch. Leave that open so the pom poms can fit inside.
  4. If you are using brads, attach a brad to each arm and leg instead of gluing it.

Talk about words that start with K when making this craft. You could also fill the mom’s pouch with pictures of things that start with K.

Madreen Karle and Meeghan Karle Mousaw
Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle's Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle's Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle's Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created "sunshine moments" to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.

Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 7 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.

The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets. Over the last 7 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
