BMS READS posters

I recently finished reading Book Love by Penny Kittle.
It was a great book for professional learning advocating the benefits of self-selected, individual reading. I totally agree! Nothing impacts student achievement more. In the book, she makes posters of students are her school reading in different situations. I loved them and totally stole her idea. I took some pictures, used Fireworks to "cut out" the kids and design the posters, and then sent them to Staples to be printed. They came out looking fantastic. I have gotten so many complements from staff and the kids are loving them. Now everyone wants to pose for me!! Here they are, although you don't get the full effect unless they are in their full two foot by three foot glory.
