It's 1:30 on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and I am still sitting in my library!
I am so excited by what my students created today and I don't want to wait until after Thanksgiving to share it.
Our Picture Book Month celebrations have been wonderfully full here, with the students making Wordles, VoiceThreads, slide shows about authors and, the best part: reading an incredible amount of picture books!
Today we made bookmarks for our Picture Book Month Partners (schools in other parts of the country). My students were so excited that another student, somewhere else in the country would be using their bookmarks to hold a page in a book. It makes me proud. I left the parameters pretty open, save for that the theme should be about celebrating picture books. I walked about with my digital camera in one hand and my flip in the other. Pictures and an Animoto movie below. The student interviews will be posted later tonight.
As one student so aptly said: Reading is Rad!
