Activity Name: Classroom Personification
Activity Description: Talk about how Josh Funk personified food items in the refrigerator. Tell students that they will be personifying the various items in the classroom: pencil sharpener, flag, pencil, eraser, book, notebook, SMARTboard, dry erase marker and so on. Ask students to write a narrative from their classroom object's point of view.
Whether it be for one specific student, a small group of kids, or a whole class, finding a "just right" book makes the teacher's and the students' day.
