Teacher will read the “Foot Book” story to the children and after the story teacher will have all the children remove their socks and shoes and she will trace around each of the children’s feet- make sure you trace around both the right and left foot and try to go in between their toes while you are tracing their feet with a pencil.
Trace around their feet onto heavy paper such as white cardstock paper and then have the children color or paint their feet and then they can decorate their feet (tracings) by placing star stickers onto their toes on their papers that they just colored, if they paint their toes, then they will need to wait for the paint to dry before sticking on the star stickers.
