This week’s stART was a boy’s only affair. Jael did her own project and really wasn’t interested in the book the boys chose. Ezra and Mateos had picked up this Halloween book of knock knock jokes last week and wanted to make a joke book of there own. 

So after they both came up with a few jokes to write down we got to work on creating our book. First I folded some plain paper in half so they could have pages to write on. Since the book they chose was a lift the flap, I marked out areas for where they would attach flaps of their own.

They got to work making the drawings to go along side the jokes. Then we cut out and glued the flaps to cover the punch line of the jokes.

Next we used some folded over construction paper to make the cover. Ezra wanted a pumpkin on the cover just like the story, so he drew some up. Then Mateos pasted them on the cover. I stapled the pages together for them to complete the book.

They both got such a kick out of telling each other the jokes.

 Until next time.......
