I stumbled on a great project called Student Treasures. It is a process of creating, writing and illustrating a book. As a teacher I can elect to complete this project with a class or individuals. A kit is sent to me at school, with instructions and special paper on which we create the book. The book is then published as a hard cover, professional book. FREE! Of course all students have the opportunity to purchase their own copy of the book, but the general idea is to motivate students to want to write and read.
I am currently undertaking this project with multiple classes at both of the Elementary Schools I am working at - hopefully with great results. But I had an extra kit, so it is a great opportunity to challenge Yasemin and help her improve her writing skills.
She is very excited and this morning wrote two pages, coloured one and also dressed up as Frida.
I love Yasemin's enthusiasm for this project - she is really loving her art! Don't worry Grandma, we will buy you a copy of the book ! Aunty Cherilyn and Judy you need to let me know if you would like a copy...
