This idea could be used in a childs room combining objects you have with pictures. Great project to do with your kids when they are old enough to not eat the glue and too young to sniff it! Do they still do that..hope not!
FREE Here is a blank Cornell notes template for any classroom use. Cornell notes are an effective way for students to take notes on a book chapter, lecture, or presentation. My students' grades have improved as a result of using Cornell notes, because it keeps them organized and thoughtful.
One historical example of boxes that Sirc uses is the artwork of Joseph Cornell. Cornell, an American artist in the early 20th century, used found objects (mostly Victorian trinkets) from thrift stores to create scenes he placed within boxes. According to Sirc, Cornell's boxes make "notions of articulate coherence, conventional organization, and extensive development seem irrelevant" (115).
I love how the board is separated, I especially like the "juicy" questions...a way to remember purposeful talk and/or critical writing questions. The kids would look forward to seeing these and would make sure you got to it!!
