I love this! So fun and creative - and kicked off by promoting literature and reading.

Students love these books! This extension activity encourages students to explore the topic from their own point of view and have fun too. I'm sure they love sharing!

Loved this activity! I was inspired to deepen the creative side with drawing in Keynote. I also did some app smashing with Keynote and CLIPs.
