Students have fun creating these "Main Character - Body Book Report Projects." Students design the character's body and then glue the writing templates inside the vest area and descriptive adjectives on the outside of the body. For more information about this project, visit this page: http://www.uniqueteachingresources.com/character-body-book-report.html
Bulletin board/wall art idea: have students trace their hand and arm on tagboard. Search through magazines for images, words, designs and colors that describes their personality and collage their hand. Each student can also cut out the letters of their name as a final touch.
(G) "Classroom Rules" Have a discussion the first day about what it looks like to follow these rules. ie: be ready to learn- be in your seat, quiet and ready with all of your supplies and books you will need.
