Excellent "Meet the Teacher" letter for the beginning of the year. - I can see a "Meet the Student" project set up just like this at the beginning of the year.

They picked their favorite book used a piece of cardstock folded to look like a book with a binding. They illustrated the cover, and wrote a brief summary on the back. We read some summaries on the back of some of the books in our class library and the students noticed that many of them ended in questions. We discussed how the questions left you wanting to read more to find out what happens in the book. add their photo & DONE!

Debbie Diller on Word Walls....  1. Make a border or grid for the letters/words. Based on research, the brain sees in borders.  2. Make vowels and consonants different colours.  3. Add a picture for the beginning sound of the letter.  4. Make the words on the word wall black and white. Words are easier to see and it is a common color for words in print.
