This week I've been sharing all of the games, projects and activities that I did with my third graders during Math Workshop while we were learning about 2D Geometry. Today I want to focus on how I displayed the cover of The Greedy Triangle to create a colorful bulletin board title in no time without damaging the book.
I simple took the book jacket off and slid paperclips over each of the four corners. Next, I used pushpins to secure the jacket to the board by putting them into the board through the paperclip.
Because I love to have my students complete writing projects that are inspired by books, this is a great way to let passersby know what the display is all about without needing to cut and hang a bunch of letters to form a title.
Check out some of my book-inspired writing projects and bulletin boards:
A Bad Case of the Stripes
It's OK To Be Different
The Thankful Book
Diary of a _____ (Worm, Spider, Fly)
