Your students will enjoy doing a "children's author study". This pack now includes 24 different posters, each one focusing on a different children’s author. If you are doing an author study, these posters may work for you.
I have marked these posters for grades 3-5. Please click the preview button to help you make a better decision as to whether you think these posters will work for you and your class.
Grab your media specialist, get some books on each author or by each author, get your computers ready, and have fun learning about the different authors and the books they have written.
You can have the kids in the class research a different author. If you have more than 24 kids in your class, a couple might have to do the same author . I have also included a sheet that can be used with any author.
This works great as a center activity, homework, partner activity, or however you want to use them.
The sections for the students to fill out are:
*# of Books written by Author
*My favorite book by the author
*It's my favorite because....
*Fun Facts about the Author (3)
*Common Themes found in his/her books
*Cool Character created by the Author
*Trait of that Character
*Evidence from a story to prove the trait
*portrait of the Author (could be drawn or printed off and glued)
*Quote from the Author
*If I could interview the author, 2 questions I would ask....
The authors included:
Ezra Jack Keats
**Blank form for any author
OPTIONAL Writing Paper is included for each author too. You can have your students take the info. from the poster write about it in paragraph form. If students need more than one page, they can use the included themed sheet for the top page and staple any other pages behind it.
I have also included an 8.5x11 title poster that you could laminate and hang above the posters.
The posters look great hanging in the hallway or in the classroom on a bulletin board.
NOTE: Once you have displayed them, another option is to bind in order to make a class book. Use the title page I made as the cover for the book. What a great class project!! Kids will enjoy reading it for the rest of the year.
Thanks so much, as I always appreciate it when people stop by to look at my products.
