As a child, I was a voracious reader and quickly finished books, magazines, etc. I loved to read so much that I would even read the back of the cereal box at breakfast. I have always told my students that I didn't care WHAT they read, as long as they read daily. I am constantly telling them, "You can even read a cereal box!" I decided to make this statement true and voila' a teaching unit was born. I hope you and your students enjoy these activities. Maybe they will even inspire you to make a few of your own. After all, all you need is a few empty cereal boxes!
great activity for summer learning for parents to use!

I've always loved reading the cereal box but this practical packet makes it enjoyable and educational. I think I am going to put this in a summer packet for my 4th graders. If I were to add something, I'd include math but that's just me. I really love this.
This was very cute! I see so many possibilities with this. It is good practice for students to read what is in their foods, and what a great idea to introduce it as soon as they can read a cereal box. I can see including this in my June pages that I am working on right now. Many students will be out of school, but that doesn't mean they need to quit thinking. I see this as an excellent way to keep their brian in shape over the summer months. It's also wonderful for us homeschoolers. If I have your permission, I'd love to feature this in my next month's featured pages on my website. You can email me at email@example.com. I have a wide home school audience, as well as many former full time teacher colleagues. I also draw some Google traffic. I would link it back to your store and your name. Thanks! I look forward to using this with my own kids.

LOVE this! One of the best lines on literacy that I heard in college was this one, "Have you read any good cereal boxes lately?" Boy, does this remind me of that! I, too, was a voracious reader and read the cereal boxes--still am and still do. I even save cereal boxes so using this will be a cinch! Thanks so much!
