After spending too many minutes staring down the hideous and still huge snow heaps piled everywhere, I decided it was time to take action! Down came the last remaining winter decorations and I informed the class that we were going to BRING SPRING!
We like making hallway displays that get students talking, so we decided to make another book review project, much like the Valentine’s Day one. We brainstormed a list of things that make books “GROW” on us and then set to work writing mini book reviews of a book the students thought might grow on someone else!
After we planning, drafted, and revised those–we got our creative juices flowing!
