Based on the post written on March 14 2022.
This past year, our Mercury class has been working on a book called “My Book All About Me.” The book is from the ME, Myself collection of Dr. Seuss books. (We endearingly call it MyBook at school). This book is basically a big collection of fun facts about each student in Mercury class.
We start working on the book very early in the year and fill out at least one page a week. Each page is unique and colorful and asks a lot of questions in English. For example: “How tall are you? How many teeth do you have? Where do you live? What do you like to eat?”
Because each student’s answer tends to be different from their classmates, we write everyone’s answers down on our big whiteboard and have the kids copy their individual answers in class.
Here is a page spread we recently worked on together. There were many fun questions about our bodies!
For how many seconds can you stand on your hands?
Mercury kids split into two lines and tested their skills against the door. It was a lot of fun to connect our writing and our physical bodies together to complete our lesson!
Many kids enjoy MyBook because of its fun and creative nature. If you’re curious about the book and want to know more, here is a link to the hardbook version:
