Book Snaps are a great activity to create excitement before, during, or after reading ANY text. Students will assume the role of a character from any work. Then, they will “take a picture” as that character would for their Book Snap. The image will represent an important aspect of the work. To finish their Book Snaps, students will select a quotation from the work that pairs with the image, and they will add a text bar with the quotation in true Snap Chat style. An editable rubric is included if you would like students to present their selections and rationale to class.

As a bonus, they make beautiful classroom décor! You can read about how I use Book Snaps to introduce my choice reading unit here. This assignment pairs with my favorite unit of the year: The Critical Reader’s Novel Study Unit.
