Back when I was a camp counselor a few years ago, I made lots of fun crafts with the children that my fellow counselors taught me. One of them was the Monster Bookmark – it was really fun to teach kids how to fold it up and allow them to be creative with the eyes and teeth. I rediscovered these on Pinterest and reminisced about the fun times at camp 🙂I thought it could also work as a fun craft at the beginning of the year to encourage my students to see the fun in reading. The “monsters” mouths are biting the page that you left off at so it should be exciting to keep reading and see what page he can eat next! The bookmarks could also be related to math since the students have to fold the pages into various shapes (triangles, squares, diamonds). Art should always be incorporated anywhere it can be because it isn’t a subject in many schools nowadays.
