We Heart Books - Part 2

16 February 2012
Do you remember the We Heart Books activity I shared with you earlier this week?  Here is a picture of the bulletin board we created just outside our classroom (we actually displayed our work across two bulletin boards - this is just one of them).

Do you remember that I promised you I would share the writing prompt sheet we used for it?  Well, I went one step further.  I created a whole FREEBIE file just for you!  This file contains instructions, a sample of the art activity, the writing prompt instruction sheet with link to the website for creating the hearts, and a student example.  And you don't have to wait until Valentine's Day next year to use this activity - the LOVE of reading is something you can celebrate at any time of the year.  Just click HERE or on the picture below to download your own copy.  I hope you enjoy!

Happy Thursday!!!

  5. Hi Jen:

    When we did the "line over hands" in October, I thought of you! I should have known you already had that art idea in your repertoire.

    I love your freebies (Actually I love everything you do!)

    You were the star of our temperature word problems the other day. I think my California kiddos think you live in Antarctica!

    Wishing you a happy day...
