One of the joys of working in a school is seeing the amazing projects our students create. Naturally, their book projects are especially interesting to me, and I always look forward to seeing the kids come to school on “Book Project Day.” Each of our 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students chooses a book that they’ve read and enjoyed – and then they select from a list of projects. After they present them to their classmates, their works of visual ingenuity are displayed around the school, and that’s when I take a little walk around the school with my iPhone. There are always more cool projects than I can include in a post, but here are a few that caught my eye this month.
One of the Magic Tree House books by Mary Pope Osborne (I’m not sure which book this child read, but it doesn’t really matter. How great is this that they are asking Jack and Annie to come to their Christmas party!)
I Am Going! An Elephant and Piggie Book by Mo Willems
The Gardener by Sarah Stewart (This is really awesome. The student made a rooftop garden on top of a cardboard apartment building.)
Trouble According to Humphrey by Betty Birney (I don’t know if you can see him, but this Humphreyville includes a little Humphrey in the small blue house.)
Judy Moody Predicts the Future by Megan McDonald
Nikki and Deja by Karen English
Anne of Avonlea by Lucy Maud Montgomery
