PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Start your back-to-school prep early with a set of task cards for box books. Box Books are a great way to build up your literacy centers or give you a head start on activities for early finishers.
Box books are a fun and unique way to encourage your students to read ‘real-world’ text. They also spark curiosity and engage students in learning more about the world around them. Students can self-check using the answer key cards. Reading skills are reinforced in an imaginative way. They also serve as cross-curricular lessons covering topics in history and science. Writing is covered in a variety of writing activities at the end of each box book unit.
Laminate pages for durability. If you laminate, place the cover sheet or a blank sheet over the first task card. Then, cut around the task cards to free them from the laminate.
Make several copies of response sheets and place them with the answer keys in a folder. Place them in a tub for a literacy center or pass them out and let the fun begin!
You can use box books over and over. What a great way to learn AND recycle!
Selected vocabulary words are bolded and included in a glossary.
This 23 page resource includes 21 informational text passages, 6 writing prompts, a persuasive writing activity, and 6 creation activities
