Red Clover booklets--a collaborative project

Ms. Catozzi and Mrs. Finn recently attended the annual Red Clover conference at Lake Morey Resort  both to learn about the newest crop of Red Clover nominated books and to share their own collaborative project with other conference-goers. 

Second grade teacher Ms. Catozzi and Library Media Specialist Mrs. Finn collaborate all year to help second graders create a booklet showcasing each of the year's 10 Red Clover nominees.  After being introduced to each title in Library class, Mrs. Finn works with Ms. Catozzi during second grade literacy time to help second graders write or research something meaningful about each title and create a small art project to go along with their writing.  The result is a wonderful keepsake of 10 outstanding books and a portfolio of how each student improves their writing throughout the course of the year.
