I wanted to show you this great bulletin board and teaching idea! This activity was part of a PLC that I am doing with K-2 teachers. We read the book Fireflies, by Julie Brinckloe. The teachers were asked to write a quick memory that was inspired by the book. We added a simile to the quick write using examples in Fireflies. This experience allowed us to showcase teacher writing, and provide a tool that teachers could use to teach similies. Teachers were given the writing collection to use with students. Thank you Mrs. Madden for the artwork!
