7's Up - Sidewalk Recommendations

Last week was my school's last full week of school. I decided it was too beatiful to stay inside, so I took my 7th graders and a bucket full of sidewalk chalk outside.  I had each student pick a square of the sidewalk and write a book recommendation in it.  These were books they really enjoyed and thought someone else might too.  Students out for lunch later could see them and hopefully find a new book to read.  Below are pictures of their creations.

Some books recommended were:
The Dark Divine
I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to be Your Class President
Vladimir Tod
Percy Jackson
Boy at War
Beautiful Creatures
MANY Sarah Desson books
Because of Winn Dixie
Boy in the Striped Pajammas
39 Clues
Diary of a Wimpy Kid

And so many many more!

That is one of the coolest things I've ever seen! I want to decorate with sidewalk chalk and share books I loved at the same time.

What a great idea. And I bet the kids enjoyed writing abut the books more because it was fun. They picked great titles too.
