Amazing Student Projects
Take these recent projects that readers shared with me:
First, images from a class project in which SCUMBLE came to life--in LEGOs! Students in a classroom in my home town recreated and presented scenes from the book.
And second, just this week I got to enjoy another awesome SAVVY project--and a very elaborate one at that! Third graders from a book study group run by parent volunteers at Windsor Elementary School in Illinois mailed me a VERY fun package.
After reading SAVVY, the kids compiled a CD that included an original SAVVY song. They created the artwork for the CD case as well as the disc, and even wrote liner notes. Then they made a video of the whole group singing the song, "I've Got a Savvy and I know it!"
Needless to say, I was impressed.
And, I sort of wish I was in 3rd or 4th grade again.
