Hello Crafty (and Teacher) Friends,
Another busy week, but FCAT (our state standardized test to measure math and reading growth) is over. Yippee! Now we wait for results! We have continued working on our poetry unit and currently have 5 different poems completed...Found, 5 W's, Couplets, Quatrains, and Haiku. Next week will will add Tanka and Limericks.
I made this tag for our Poetry Spotlight Reader.
Not sure who to give it to yet or if I should make one for every student.
Here are the covers of the books. I wanted to take photographs of the inside pages, but the power went out at school due to a storm and it was too dark to take pictures. I will be sure to take more when I return to class. You will enjoy their poems! They have done an amazing job and had fun learning at the same time!
I found the spotlight on Twinkle Toes, a cartridge a friend let me borrow. I glitterized the beam of light to make it look like it is shining down on the reader.
Some faux stitching with a white gel pen, a yellow flower to match the spotlight, and ribbon.
A little inking around the white frame.

So, what do you think?
Should I make one for every student, pick top three, or just one?
SO hard to decide!
Take care, stay creative, and enjoy your weekend,
