Create A Book Blog Hop

Welcome to "Cricut in My Classroom" and to Joy's Life Create A Book Blog Hop.  If you have not arrived here from Sandra, at 365 Days of Cricut, you may want to go back and start at the beginning.  You don't want to miss any of these creative ideas!   I am new to the blogging community and am excited to be participating in my first Blog Hop.  We are celebrating "Read Across America" by creating our own books.  Read Across America is annual event celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday designed to promote reading in schools across the country. Our school is having special dress-up days this week to celebrate.  (You'll see me dressed up at the end of this post - I love to embarrass by two boys!)

My book creation combines two of my passions - paper crafting and children's literature.  I am a first grade teacher and my students were more than willing to help with the project.  They shared some of their favorite books and book series, and now I will pass them along to you.  I created a small scrapbook using my new Your Story. 












This is my sweet friend and teacher-neighbor, Kim on the right, and me on the left.  
We are Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss' "Cat and the Hat."


 
Blog Candy!!!  For a chance to win the DCWV small stack, Grade School, some school-themed embellishments, and a small pack of clear stamps, leave a comment on this post. I will choose a winner this Friday, March 4th.  Please join me as a follower.  Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Too stinkin cute!! I love that you incorporated your students' help with this book!! Teachers are such GREAT assets to our children and we rarely thank them enough for all they do. As a parent.. THANK YOU.. for being such a great role model for our lil ones,for teaching them more than just their A B C's and 1 2 3's , for helping them grow into such great people, for the tools they need to be better friends, and the love they need to have a happy life. :) THESE, my teacher friend, are the tools most people don't realize that teachers like YOU.. give our kids EVERY DAY!!! Thank you...

    BIG hugs,

  22. What a lovely way to use the Cricut in your classroom. I just retired as first grade teacher after 33 years. Wish I would have had my Cricut for longer before I retired. I am sure the kids love the book. swoozan@roadrunner.com

  23. What a wonderful book! I love how you added the pictures of the kids holding their favorite books! The picture of you at the end is cute too! My SIL is a 3rd grade teacher and she left this morning wearing a Cat in the Hat, hat. The head master of her school bought all the teachers one to wear, today. She looked so cute!

  25. What an amazing idea Becky! I love this. If I were going to teach school, I think 1st grade would be my choice. They are so thirsty to learn at that age and just beginning reading most of them. I truly believe the love of reading is one of the most important things you can teach a child :) I am a new follower of your lovely blog.
