Genres Come Alive Through Book Sculptures!

Today, students put their finishing touches on their group book sculptures representing the several literary genres! (Check out Day One here.) They turned out quite magnificent, D.A.T.A. Scholars!  See if you can guess the genres conveyed in the photos below!  Tomorrow, students will take a "Gallery Walk" and examine each other's sculptures, and then participate in online reflection on Edmodo (with uploaded photos of each sculpture) explaining the genres each sculpture represents and evidence to back up their inferences.  They will also choose a sculpture to inspire a short written narrative.  What a fun way to start off the year to encourage both reading and writing!

Students also worked on illustrating symbols for genres when they finished!
