T.G.I.S.B.. and a Literacy Walk

Thank God It's Spring Break!!
My Spring Break is finally here! I am laying in bed still in my pj's as I type this post!! What a great feeling, of not having to get up if I don't want to! I have so much I want to get done to include rest and relaxation.

We had a literacy walk at our school on Thursday.  This is where each class takes a literary or informational text book and have students create some kind of response to the book. Then create a display board about the book.  Classes walked by to see each display and the students left comments about what they liked about each display.
Last year we did The Gingerbread Man...
But this year we did...
THERE WAS AN OLD LADY WHO
SWALLOWED A CHICK
I had the story playing on cd player as each class walked by.
I had my firsties respond to the writing prompt
"If I Was The Old Lady I Would Swallow..."
They also added a rhyming words twist to it!
Here is how they turned out! Too cute...

Well that is all for now.  I am off to begin enjoying my SB...I am working on a few things and will be back soon to share...I'm out!!
Have a Sensational Saturday!!

  1. Happy Spring Break!!!! I love being able to sit around in my pj's all morning. Your school literacy walk is a great idea, what a great way to promote books. I'm pinning you so I can remember this for next year. Enjoy your break.

    1. Hi Stacy,
      Yes, it was a luxury to be able to sleep in!! I am always up at the crack of dawn. This was a welcomed treasure. Thanks for pinning my display. I also had the story playing on the cd so they could listen to as they walked by.
