Teacher Week - Day 3!
Today is day three of Teacher Week (hosted by Babbling Abby, go check out her blog!). The topic for today is creative ideas. I can't take credit for this idea (and if I knew who to give credit to I would!) it is an idea that one of the teachers at my school got from a teacher in another school division. Anyway.... As I said yesterday, I love to foster a love for reading in my classroom so when a co-worker suggested that our grade level do pumpkin projects I quickly jumped on board! The idea behind the project is that the student gets a pumpkin and decorates that pumpkin (with their parents/guardians help) to match a character from their favorite book. They are then supposed to bring their pumpkin to school (along with their book) and share why they chose that book/character. They are soooooo cute and most grades can do this project! Here are a few pictures from my class last year:
