A fun movie reference helps students to remember the message: Never forget how much exciting journeys are within the covers of books right at your fingertips!
From the creator:
“I used Pacon printed bulletin board paper and a matching boarder.
I found a coloring sheet of the house from Up! and colored to match the movie.
I purchased balloon cut outs.
The genres were printed on clear, full page labels and placed on balloons before laminating.
I used silver ribbon for the strings.
I selected a font and printed on cardstock, laminated, and cut out.”
How can you use this board with your students?
- This could be an interactive board where you ask students to help you come up with as many different categories of books as possible to add to the board.
- Another option would be to do a scavenger hunt: Create the balloons ahead of time and hand out one to each student and ask them to come back with a book that matches their balloon category.
- You could also make an anchor chart that explains the different book genres too.
