Crinkleroot character bookmarks!

This was my "artistic" project with students. A multi-step process after listening to books and before book checkout can be very hectic since I am on a fixed schedule....time constraints can be very stressful!

Here are a few finished Crinkleroot bookmarks. Crinkleroot was created by Jim Arnosky and is a friend to all animals. Crinkleroot was supposedly "born in a tree and raised by bees." The kindergarteners were soooooo excited when they heard this. They thought this was soooo cool. Then I explained the term....fictional character. They were bummed.
First and second graders were very good listeners and rule followers. They were focused on creating their best Crinkleroot character ever....
Happy reading,
