Students at Varieur School in Pawtucket, R.I. read Charlie Bumpers vs. The Teacher of the Year. Author Bill Harley visited the school and all had a rocking good time. Look what they did on the walls? Students started with the venerable Charlie Bumpers (that’s him in the red flying in the center) and surrounded him with self-illustrated images of their favorite or recently read book covers. See if you can see your favorite. Consider adding such a wall in your school. Don’t forget to share your images with us at Read to Them. Students at Varieur School are certainly living the culture of literacy!
