In Myla’s 2nd grade class her teacher does this project all year long called “Traveling Tales,” and each kid gets a turn about 3-4 times through-out the year to make one. Myla came home with a HUGE back-pack packed with everything she could or would possibly use to write/create/make a book. She gets about 1 week to choose a topic, write the story, edit, make the book, pictures, bind it, etc. Myla chose to write about when she was 3 weeks old and was dropped…got a double skull fracture/etc…many of you remember. She loves to tell the story of this. Minus all the teasing she now gets from her family for being dropped on her head. Then after she turns it in the parents are invited on the day she reads her book to the class, to sit next to her while she reads. After she reads it to the class, her book is then added to the “in-class” library and other kids can check out her book to read. It’s really cute.
