To make a jazzy pencil holder, collect some multi-coloured beads, sequins, shells, clay, a small plastic plant pot and a rolling pin in a plastic tray. Cover your work area with newspaper. Knead a handful of clay into a round ball. Use a rolling pin to make a flat shape. Cover the plastic plant pot with the clay ensuring that it overlaps the edges at the top and bottom of the pot. Stick the coloured beads, sequins and shells on the pot. Keep the pot aside for drying. When the pot has dried completely, apply a layer of white glue. Keep it aside to let the glue dry.

Learning Points

A flow chart gives in point-form the sequence of tasks, events or steps in a process that should be followed when making something.
The points given in the form of a flow chart are developed into a paragraph.
A paragraph is a group of sentences about a subject or part of the same subject. It is also called a short composition and starts with the subject.

Steps to write a paragraph from a flow chart :

– Give a heading or title to the paragraph. The heading helps to indicate what the paragraph is all about.
– Follow the instructions as given in the flow chart. Avoid adding any points of your own.
– Use direct, simple and clear language. The paragraph must be interesting to read.
– Use the present tense form of the verb.
– Use imperative sentences since the verb comes at the start of the sentence and is addressed to the second person (you).
– Avoid beginning sentences with words such as “Then we ….”
