Making Tulip Books
Creative Assessment for Elementary Students
Dwyer, 1st Grade teacher
Alton Central School in Alton, NH, and her students
are publishing their own tulip assessment books. Each
created a permanent record of this year’s tulip project complete
with labels, drawings, measurements and photographs. The
books took two 45-minute class periods to complete.
Making the Books - Laura Dwyer shares:
In preparation I typed up eight labels for each child (see below).
I cut and placed the labels and a glue stick in plastic baggies, one for each child.
Each book is made using 3 sheets of printer paper.
students and I worked together to put them in order starting
with the cover. Next we glued
labels into the book and numbered the pages.
Also included on this page was their centimeter measurement of the tulip that they measured.
