The Word Collector is one of my favorite books! Some people collect stamps and baseball cards but not Jerome, he collects WORDS! In my opinion that is cool! This book helps students understand that all words big and small have meaning and impact. A great activity would be a word wall or bulletin board of kindness, this can be done inside the classroom or outside in the hallway. The students are responsible for coming up with the most amazing words they can think of. Also, I would have students draw names and write three to four kind and encouraging words that describe the person they received. This is a great way to create a community in the classroom. I truly do love this book and I can not wait to use it in the classroom!
