1-2-3 Sport A Mustache With Me!
Anyone know why a mustache is so popular right now? I see them everywhere, in all sorts of novelty, craft and stationery stores.
Well, because they are the "it" thing right now, I decided to whip up a big-yellow fluffy-Lorax one!
Making a mustache/moustache to launch a writing prompt, is an interesting and "Suessical" way of doing things. I think your students will enjoy it.
For an adorable bulletin board, take everyone's photograph wearing their mustache and put it next to their writing.
Your bulletin board title could be the same question you asked: "We mustache you, would you save a truffula tree?"
Flank the board on either side, with 2 colorful truffula trees.
Make them out of strips of neon-colored tissue paper, and rolled up green bulletin board paper for the trunk. Stripe it with brightly colored border.
Or you could really make them sturdy with PVC pipe. Mrs. Lodge, a very creative librarian, did just that. I LOVE her Truffula trees! Click on the link for directions.
As a surprise, while you're "truffulling" why not whip together some Truffula pencils. I think students would think it rather cool, to write about saving a Truffula tree, with a Truffula pencil! These were made by Jin Yong. Click on the link to get directions over at the inspiring Under The Cherry Tree Blog.
