Tired of the same old dress up days that are only loosely related to literacy activities? Hat day, pajama day, silly socks day, Wacky Wednesday? Well, here's something different! This pack gives you everything you need to run a Character Con Reading Celebration Party in your class.
This day of fantasy is great as a class reward party or can be used as an activity for Read Across America or Literacy Week (Literacy Month). Students will dress up as a character from a book and get to share a book they love with their classmates. The acting station includes cue cards that students answer in character and the writing station provides a variety of differentiated activities to choose from. Printables from the writing station are excellent Reader's Response activities that can be used year-round.
You will get notices to send home to parents, directions to put into your stations, 10 different acting cards, 8 writing activities at that cover multiple levels, a postcard printable, a newspaper printable, a scaffolded summary printable, a scaffolded comparison paragraph printable, printable picture and writing paper, printable tri-line paper, and printable wide-rule paper.
