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!
I made some tracers for students to use to make different shaped petals, but I encourage them to make their own as well! The class was buzzing with excitement and talk about spring--it was wonderful!
A few students wanted to stay in at lunch to make other "Spring Things" like clouds, suns, bees, and the like so I shrugged and thought, "Why not!"
So . . . here it is! Our attempt to bring a little something warm and toasty to our dismal climate! What do you think? I printed off a springy saying, mounted it on springy paper, and made this springy display!
I couldn't get zoomed in enough to get the "SPRING into a great book" without losing the flowers. I also printed off "These books will really GROW on you!" . . . I couldn't decide which I liked better. If you want a quick and easy bulletin board--give it a try! I zipped my petal tracers and flower centers and printable letters into a quick and easy bulletin board set if you are interested. I put both sayings in it so YOU can decide! Have a great day!
