The Gift That Keeps on Giving
My walls don't need much on them at the beginning of the year when I know this will be happening to them. For the first several weeks of school, the kids decorate our back door and wall with their trash. The point is to heighten their awareness of words they can already "read." What an important message to send, especially for those who didn't even know they were readers yet. What's even better is that the trash never ends up in the trash. When it comes down it finds itself in books that the kids love to read over and over again. It's the gift that keeps on giving. See what I mean here.
