The Great Pumpkin-Painting Project

Talking about the books we're reading is a powerful practice...and sharing the characters we love sends positive ripples into the reading universe. That's why my good friend, Brad Gustafson, and I are inviting you and your students to join us for the Great Pumpkin-Painting Project!

We want you to post your creative #LiteracyOLantern art to your favorite social-media channels. Be sure to tag us on the posts you share so we can celebrate reading along with you and/or your class. 

To help you get started, we used our weekly book talk webcast, #ReadThisNow, to create a fun video explaining the process we use to create our literacy-themed pumpkins. However, feel free to use whatever classroom supplies you have handy.

Brad and I will revealing our own #literacyolanterns on social media soon! In the meantime, if you feel like you might need some additional inspiration to get started, click HERE. (The link contains several samples and a free digital "LiteracyOLanterns" poster you can share with students.) 

We can't wait to see what you and your kiddos create! Happy painting and happy READING, everyone!
