    SO CUTE! ---Bookworm Wall Display - After we discussed our favorite class books, I had the students think of all the books they've read this year. They picked their favorite and were given a piece of cardstock which I folded to look like a book with a binding. They illustrated the cover, and wrote a brief summary on the back.
