READING AND WRITING
Also see: Tips and Activities For Young Writers
Set up a display of books reflecting the themes in “I’m Bored” (eg. Other books about children playing, books about using imagination, non-fiction books on vegetables or birds).
Discuss how the text is set up in “I’m Bored”. Why do the writer/illustrator set up the words the way they do? What feeling are they trying to bring out for the reader? Have you seen any other books where the words aren’t just in straight lines? Have the students create another page that would fit in the book (on the topic of why kids aren’t boring) drawing both words and pictures in creative ways.
