Thanks to Zoe...its Crazy Hair Time!

  I came across this book when I met Ard Hoyt, the illustrator, at my Arkansas Reading Conference I chaired.  Fell in love with his illustrations and what better a book to do self portraits with CRAZY HAIR! 
My student's work is below.  This is the link to a SUPER EASY AND BASIC power point I did to help my young ones make thier heads large enough for the big paper.  http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/huskeyj72501-1347048-crazy-hair/

Here is a little tid bit about the book that I found:

Mom and Dad Fleefenbacher think their daughter Zoe’s hair is wild and beautiful. And for her kindergarten teacher, Zoe’s vivacious tresses were a comfort. But Zoe’s about to start first grade, and her new teacher doesn’t fool around….
“School has rules,” she says. “No wild hair in my class!”
So what are Zoe and her free-spirited hair going to do now?
With exuberance and humor to spare, Laurie Halse Anderson and Ard Hoyt, the New York Times bestselling author and illustrator, tease up a terrific tale of hairy hijinks, classroom chaos, and the importance of teachers and students learning to work together.
