I have a long list of library projects to do this summer, including this one. When I saw Duplo...
Book Spine Center
This center was inspired by an old bulletin board I had last year. Students made book spines, complete with title, author, and call number.
I decided to try this activity out as a center and it's been working really well! I use strips of paper with spine label stickers. There are always tons of scraps in our teacher's room and I don't usually even have to cut any myself!
Students can create a book spine for an actual book they enjoy or they can make up a title. They write the call number on the spine label. I've been laminating the book spines and we will alphabetize them and create a bookshelf on the wall.
This spine was made by a 4th grade teacher! I love when the classroom teachers participate in activities. It gets the kids that much more excited!
