Last year, I had a student paint a portrait of Lil Wayne as part of a multi-genre research project. She let me keep it. Needless to say, I got creative with it:
He now suggests different books for the kids to read. Each book is based on what we're doing in class. For example, the book in the right is about the Death Penalty, which is based on the book we're reading in class, The Innocent Man by John Grisham. I have one student who is reading that book independently because he enjoys The Innocent Man so much!
Yo, Yo, Yo, Check it Out!
