For this projects, students turn their free reading books into a poem. (I use this activity after we have done our poetry unit, so the students are more familiar and comfortable writing their own poetry.) Students can focus on various aspects of their novels--plot, theme, characters, etc. My students enjoy this project because it allows them to share their free reading books with each other in a very unique and personal way.
The documents within the zip file are all in pdf format.
All of the items I share on TPT are ones I actually use in my middle school classroom. Most have been revised multiple times based on "test runs" with my students. I work hard to make information accessible to students in a fun and simple way while still challenging students to meet and exceed their abilities. Most of my assignments can be used with all ability levels; differentiation comes in my expectations of what individual students or groups can achieve. Many of my activities can be used with individual students or cooperative groups.
Thanks for looking at Middle School Reading Room!
