First, we talked to them about what a Bento Box was and shared stories of eating sushi and other things out of these amazing little boxes that originate from Japan and other Asian countries. We explained to our students this is what we would be doing with our #BookBento project, but focusing on books we have read and the elements wrapped around the book and our feelings and reflections as readers. We then showed the 4th graders lots of examples from ones we found online and the @BookBento Instagram.
