Just this past week, I was one of 25 authors who took part in the Humboldt County Author Festival in California. I had the most amazing school visits and would like to share some art and writing projects that the kids from South Fortuna Elementary and Eagle Prairie Elementary in Rio Dell did which might inspire you to do with your own children or students.
Inspired by my Night Before books, the 4th graders designed book covers.
Inspired by The Night Before the Tooth Fairy.
Kids made turkeys from scrapbook paper after reading The Night Before Thanksgiving.
The artwork of Josef Albers from An Eye for Color was recreated by the students in their own choice of color squares.
So. Fortuna kids performed readers theater with Go to Bed, Monster!
Kids in party hats made their own birthday wishes like in The Night Before My Birthday.
Students made their own version of 100 things for The Night Before the 100th Day of School.
Dinosaur art based on How to Raise a Dinosaur.
Sharing cultural influences after reading Jalapeno Bagels.
