EX:  I read Officer Buckle and Gloria and chose to do a poster about the book the first six weeks as my fiction project.  I cannot do a poster for my non-fiction book the second six weeks.  I might make a mobile with tornado facts since I read a non-fiction book about tornados during that six weeks.
