I'm happy to think I passed it on!
When my first grader was given an optional homework assignment of creating a diorama based on a book, she dismissed the idea that it was optional (and actually put it as priority over other homework!).
She had so much fun recreating a scene in the book "Sheep in a Jeep". I really enjoyed watching her process and thinking while she came up with every little element in the simple shoebox.
The hard part is deciding on whether we dismantle it so that her brother can have his toy jeep back...
