Fortunately, I had already completed my materials for tomorrow. We will review characterization and I have made a poster for character traits. My original idea was to laminate the poster and use Vis-A-Vis to write on it when we review. However, I forgot our laminating machine at school is messed up! So the students will have to create their own copy of my poster.
Here is the poster we will use:
|It is not your vision...this is definitely out of focus!|
|Fold the paper in half (like a hamburger).|
|Fold it in half again!|
|Fold up one corner. Make sure it is on the folded side!|
|Open the paper up.|
|Have students trace the folds. Fill in the character name and write away!|
Please be sure to check out my new pages for books and documents!! You will find them at the top of my page!
I'll end this post with a great quote my sweet cousin Enid had my mother forward to me. It may just become my email tagline...
"You can teach children to dream of a bright new future or you can teach them to build it with their own two hands."--Unknown
As teachers, we should teach them to dream AND build!!
