Every month my students choose one book to complete for their Monthly Book Projects. In the middle of the month the students tell me which project they'd like to complete. At the end of the month students bring in their book, project, and summary. My students LOVE these projects and they LOVE sharing their work and their thoughts on the book! Book activity choices cover a range of topics and have been updated from my "free" product. There are so many Common Core standards that can be connected I couldn't list them all! Students present their projects thoroughly in small groups and then do a "mall walk" around the room after as everyone displays their projects and gives a quick explanation as to what they did!
This document includes:
-NEW and UPDATED Monthly Book Activity Choices grid! Choices include things like: compare & contrast characters, create a "book bag" with items related to the story, create a collage based on the story and tell how all pictures relate, write letters between characters based on events, act out a scene from the book, etc.
-Homepage for students to get organized and choose their book and project as well as information so they know what is expected of them
-Monthly Book Activity Project Rubrics (one for their summary they need to include and one for the project)
I hope your students love these projects as much as mine do!!!!!
