This book was created out of the imaginations of the 2nd graders in Ms. Collins' reading group in 2011-2012. I wanted to incorporate my language students' goals into a classroom book, and since Ms. Collins had those students in her group, we decided to create the book. The students brainstormed the idea for the book (if I could be on a TV show), and we taught the writing process to them. From there, we modeled our own "If I could be on a TV show" story. Students wrote, edited, shared, and finally published their pictures and stories. It was a fun process of collaboration and creativity!
