I'm pretty tired of the stretchy fabric book covers. They don't last. You can't pick up the books without dropping them as they come from the lockers. Enough cracked spines. This year, I'm having a paper bag book cover day in the first week, and I'll enfold it (pun intended) in a lesson about surface area of rectangular prisms. I found the above picture of a drawing I did a couple of years ago showing how to cover the books. It's a little basic. Tonight I did some digging and found this great tutorial from the Childmade blog on how to accomplish the task.
So - hearty, personalized book covers, recycling, surface area, decorating. Sounds like a plan!
Thanks for looking. Please share your comments.
