Celebrating Marty McGuire!

I’ve gotten some amazing entries in my Spread-the-Word-About-Marty-McGuire contest – and even though you can enter through January 14th…these student/class entries were so great I couldn’t wait to share them.

Up first… Allison, of Mrs. Phillips’ class, who made this fabulous 3D frog, who (look carefully!) is reading Marty McGuire.

Not to be outdone, Kathy Schmidt’s second grade group did a multi-week Marty McGuire book study unit. (Kathy wrote it up in detail here, and it’s a terrific resource for second and third grade teachers interested in sharing Marty with a class!)  Their culminating activity? Marty McGuire book trailers!

The contest runs through January 14th, and you don’t have to be a kid or a teacher to enter. Just do something to spread the word about Marty McGuire, and you could win a $100 bookstore gift card, signed books, or a virtual writing workshop. All the details are here!
