Here's a cute idea to add to your students stories. Characters that peek over their papers. Duplicate the pictures and place them in your writing center. Have the children color the picture, cut them out, and paste them to their papers. Display the decorated papers in the hallway or on a bulletin board.
Use the picture toppers for other activities: spelling words, research papers, sight words, decorate announcements, thank you notes, posters, hats, or for birthdays.
