I hope everyone has had a wonderful week....if I'm telling the truth, I have had a couple of badddddd days! Today was better:)
Before I talk about our book sleeves I have to share a few pics....this is totally not school or teaching related but just had to share.......look at this tree:
Isn't it prettiful?!?!?!?!?! (yep, it's a word:) )
This tree is in our front yard....it is covered with purple blossoms! It's called a Hong Kong Orchid (I think). As I'm typing and looking at these pics I'm realizing they don't even capture how pretty it is....oh well, I tried...on to our book sleeves:)
This week is "Celebrate Literacy Week Florida" and we have had some fun activities going all week:)
One of the fun things we did and I wanted to share was the kids could create "Take the Lead and Read" posters OR make favorite book covers/posters.
Well, I took it one step further.....I wanted my kids to think of an idea that they could write a book about. It had to be original, not like any book they have read or copied.
They had to illustrate the cover, title it, and then write a little teaser/blub on the back............
just like a real book sleeve.
Well they had a blast with this. They really put some thought into it and some of their teasers are just great!
These are 2 different covers.
This is the cover and back that goes with it:)
This one is one of my faves so far....her teaser/blurb is great:)
I even had 2 of my kids ask if they could really write a book to go into the sleeve:)
Yep! Yep you can:)
I'll be back in a few days with Cause/Effect Part 2:)
Have a great Friday everyone!
