This is a simple activity to monitor student's pleasure or independent reading. The activity is the main character writing a one paragraph postcard to the reader (the student) on one side of the postcard and making a create postcard design on the other side.
Included is a two page outline to model to students what to include in their postcard (setting, plot, theme). It also includes language appropriate with informal letter writing. A final page of step by step instructions are included.
I did not include a rubric, as I usually just grade this task on completion. It is a PDF so it is ready to print and use.
