Lilliedale: Book Fairy Costume. Last year I decided I was going to be a diction-fairy for Halloween.

Lilliedale: Book Fairy Costume

I had been making book page wreaths for my winter boutique and this just kinda evolved out of hours spent with a glue gun and rolled book pages. If you have made a book page wreath the this should be pretty simple. If you haven't made a book page wreath then it's still pretty easy just with a bit more reading. Rather than make a new one, I'm just breaking down how I made it last year so if it gets confusing just let me know! Book Page Tutu First take a scrap of fabric 3-4 inches wide and cut it to just a few inches longer than what you want the waist to be. Next lay the strip of fabric out flat and begin gluing on the rolled papers in rows along your strip. For each rolled up section of paper I used 2-3 pages together because dictionary pages are so thin. To make the paper rolls I like to do a mix of actually rolling the pages into cones/tubes and mixing in a few more free formed paper rolls. Here's the 1st/ bottom layer.

What Can You Tell About A Book From Its Cover?

The first thing said: “Inside this package is a book. DO NOT OPEN THE PACKAGE!” Then students were asked: From the size of your book do you think it comes from the Fiction, Non-Fiction or Picture Fiction section? They had to make a judgment purely on the size and shape of the package. Then they had to work out: What sort of spine label would you expect it to have: There was a blurb from the back of a book stuck to one side of the package. Some blurbs were longer than others but student had to make judgments about appealing and uninteresting words contained in the passage and answer the following: Then there was the challenge of matching the blurb to an image of the cover from 12 images provided. Just to be tricky, the book inside the package was not necessarily the one that matched the blurb.

While waiting for the great reveal at the end of the lesson students spent some time reading quietly. Like this: Like Loading... Ipswich District Teacher Librarian Network. < Back to Class Resources Jump to...
