Richard J. Lee and Town Center Elementary schools had their learners create virtual Book Character Pumpkins this year.
Natalie Wade, librarian at Lee, and Kate Mancuso, librarian at Town Center, created virtual pumpkin templates, and students used a markup tool to turn the pumpkin into a book character.
“I have been blown away with how creative our learners are, and how much fun they are having with this challenge,” Mancuso said. “I also love that the pumpkins are ‘on display’ virtually, and how learners can see different pumpkins created by their friends.”
Some of the book characters represented are: Arthur, Thea Stilton, Pete the Cat, the Lorax, the Grinch, Eva from Owl Diaries, Mickey Mouse, Gerald from Elephant and Piggie, and the boy from A Snowy Day.
