This exciting reading project will motivate your students to read and will make a beautiful bulletin board display!
This is a reading/writing project based on the theme: Reading Takes You Places!
~List of mentor texts (books and poems) to kick-off the project theme
~Reading Craftivity (thinking bubble and summary slip)- After finding a book that “takes” your student somewhere special, he/she will fill out a thinking bubble describing where it took them, fill out a summary, create the cover page, make a craft of themselves reading, and assemble to make an adorable literature-based display.
~Patterns for craft (head and hands)
~Printable sign to assemble: “Reading Takes You Places”
~Sample bulletin board pictures
~Ideas for how to implement (explicit lesson plan, suggestions)
~Extensions: Student reading log, Book review form (for use in classroom or within a school-wide reading program)
~Making Connections thinking bubble, for a variation of this project
Classroom-tested and kid-approved! My students LOVED imagining their stories taking them somewhere special, and really enjoyed sharing their completed projects. Also makes a great display for Meet the Teacher Night or parent/teacher conferences!
Thanks so much for reading!
