Second Grade students use Pictionary Cards to find words to illustrate in their cereal box journals.
An ordinary box....
Things you will need...craft needle, yarn, 12 x 18 manilla paper, a cereal box that the students provided, heavy duty scissors, a long arm hole punch (you can pick up one at Michaels in the scrapbooking section or on ebay--It's called a Crop-a-dile), fancy Duct tape or in this case Duck Tape and a large binding clip.
If the box is to small use Duct Tape to make it the correct size.
I used a long arm hole punch to put holes about one inche apart up the center or spine of the book. The cereal box is behind the manilla paper in this photo.
I teach the kids how to sew a pamphlet stitch book. I teach one or two kids and they can teach the rest of the students while I am cutting boxes
Tie the end strings together and cut them off or you can add beads to the extra strings.
We used 7 sheets of 12 x18 inch manilla paper folded in half. I give the kids the top page so they can work on their cover while I am help others create their box journals.
The first page is the title page.
