Ready to have some fun? Ask your students to “text” about their independent reading books using these smart-phone style accordion books. Emojis are a fun way to help students summarize their own reaction to the text and the mood of the text. These accordion books are great for interactive notebooks!
Personal Response Accordion Book
Students describe their own reactions to the book as they read. After a short written statement, students punctuate their words by choosing an emoji and pasting it to the book.
Tracking Plot Accordion Book
Students describe the plot of their independent reading book as they read. After a short written description, students punctuate their words by choosing an emoji and pasting it to the book.
