Accordion Books

Our awesome art teacher did this project with us last week. She showed the students how to fold paper and glue it together as an accordion-type book. I decided to leave it as an open-ended activity and let them choose how they wanted to fill up the pages. I love how open-ended activities can help students to feel successful and be creative, no matter what level they are at. Everyone's book was different and their individual creativity really shined. I loved all of the results, and what's even better is the kids loved it too. They were all so proud of their books! Some were even carrying them around at recess and showing them off to other kids. It was great. :)

It's always an adventure to "interpret" Kindergarten sound spelling...have fun!
