This idea came from Chris Smith. Have students dictate or write about what they want to be when they grow up. Take their photograph dressed as that profession. Develop the pictures in black and white and mount them on black construction paper.
This idea came from Fun in First Grade. Sparkly "E" shows up and is so beautiful that the other vowel in the word wants to introduce itself by saying its name.Check out the post for all of the details on using Sparkly "E" with your students.
