Book and stone painting. Classroom lesson, whenever there were times when students felt vulnerable, or uncomfortable, frustrated, or unhappy, or had problems with friendships at school, they could hold their rockfish in their hands & remember just how special they are, & all the qualities they have to offer. We encouraged them to remind themselves, there's only one you... & you can make a difference to our world!
BOOK -TASTING and TEXT-TASTING: To run book-tasting or text-tasting events, you’ll need several books, short stories or articles and menu covers with task sheet inserts. Students 1) hunt for author’s craft techniques 2) get exposure to multi-genre texts, and 3) discuss why they think authors use specific formats to deliver information. Secure multiple pages with rubber bands to create handy reference booklets that students will use throughout the year. #strugglingreaders (available at TpT)
