It's been a crazy week. I have been trying to get so much done with my friends before our spring break. We have a four day week starting tomorrow, and then off for a week. Sooooo excited for some time off. Although, I will be bringing home my third quarter assessments to grade. Hoping I am able to get them done over the next four days so I don't have to. We'll see.
Do you remember a post I wrote about one of my friends who had a serious accident? Well, my friend is still in the hospital and may be for a while. I had my class make get well cards. They came out great. I mailed them off and got a lovely email from my friend's mother thanking us all. However, I am hearing that my friend is a bit sad about being in the hospital for so long. So, what else could we do?
I decided to have my friends make a joke book. They all either wrote their own joke or wrote down their favorite joke. Then, I took lots of pictures like these, without the yellow smiley faces of course! I do wish you could see the faces they were making. They were so funny!
I printed out a bunch of them on regular printer paper. Then, I gave them to my friends who used thin Sharpies to write the jokes on the bubbles. The bubbles were just large pieces of white oak tag. I traced the speech bubble and made a dark outline. I did have to tape a web of clear and white rulers on the back so they would stand up when my friends held them. We had a lot of fun taking the pictures. The joke book came out great. We made a front and back cover, which I laminated and then bound the book. I also left some blank pages in the back of the book for my friends to write some cheery get well notes.
Then, I got to thinking about what else we could do with these pictures. Hmmmm. . . . okay, I'm drawing a total blank! So, I'm coming to you. What else could I do with these pictures?
