Ideas for use:

  1. Use as pattern to make School Bus Keepsakes (nice for end of year)
    Duplicate pattern on copy machine using colored construction paper to make cover and back. (may need to enlarge some). Duplicate booklet pages for each child (several sheets per child). On one of the booklet pages, have child glue a photocopy of his school picture and then write or draw something he enjoyed about this school year. Other pages may be used for special events that happened that school year.

  2. Glue pattern onto a string-tie envelope to use in transporting papers home and back again.

  3. Use pattern as parent note.

  4. Allow students to color buses and place their friends in the windows. Use as a part of bulletin board at beginning of year.
