Today my students went to the Media Center and created book spine poems. We had a ball! They were really unsure and a little leery of playing around with the titles at first. Once they got started though they really got into it! Once they realized they were free to use their imaginations (and that there were no grades involved) they explored so many options and actually had some fun with it! Here are a few examples--I have 100 students and I took pictures of all of them, but I only have a few on my phone to upload here.
The media assistant felt sorry for me having to use my phone to take pictures so she swiped one of the cameras reserved for the yearbook and let me use it to take more pictures. I couldn't bring the camera home to download more pictures of the book spine poems so I've only included three here. I will try to put a few more of my best ones up tomorrow.
It was awesome fun for both the kids and me!
