Middle School Students Love Beautiful Oops! Too

It’s not every day that middle school students are read a picture book and actually enjoy it! But when Ann—the K-8 Professional School Counselor at the Saint Theresa Catholic School in Des Moines, Iowa—came across Beautiful Oops! she used it to teach her students that mistakes are necessary for learning. Check out the photos below of her students creating their own “beautiful oopses,” using recycled paper, googly eyes, and foam shape stickers.
