After discussing the meaning of resolution and the different types of resolutions we talked about making a class resolution. We discussed the challenge of reading 13 books and how it could make us better people, readers, and overall students. They are going to put an envelope book report under their picture and strip. See below for how to put together the envelope book reports.
I made a "mask"/glasses of sorts for the students to wear in their pictures. I simply di-cut the numbers, colored them, laminated them, and then hot glued them together. Each student held them up as a mask as well as held their favorite book up in their picture for the outside wall display.
I cut and laminated strips of paper to put under their pictures, to hold the summary cards for their books.
To create the envelope book report simply take a regular envelope, seal it, and trim approx. one and a half inches off one of the ends (to make a pocket of sorts). Simply glue a clothes pin to the back. The students will decorate the front of the envelope to look like the the cover of the book they read. They will then simply write a summary of their book on a note card that they then slip into the envelope.
Once the envelope book report is complete the students will clip them under their picture. As their strip fills I will add more strips to the bottom to make them longer.
