In The Classroom: Book Graffiti

Some time ago my friend Susannah Richards, professor of education at Eastern Connecticut State University, told me about book graffiti, a fabulous way to share favorite books. Ever since I had wanted to do it and finally did a few weeks ago with my 4th graders. I asked each student to chose one favorite book from the current school year to feature. It could have been read independently or one I’d read aloud to them. They went off an found cover photos, pasted them on a large sheet of brown paper, and then — most fun of all— added in the graffiti.

Thank you, Susannah, for such a great idea! (Now you need to fill me in on book gossip — that looks intriguing too:)
