In addition to the reading program that I use in 2nd and 3rd grade, I have my students complete one Book Project a month. This is to ensure that they are reading “just right” books of their choice on their own time. I attach a calendar to whichever project I want students to complete for the month and provide a signature on the days that students read independently.
This packet includes 9 Book Projects, each with a letter that is to be sent home to parents, a rubric for assessment, and project examples or templates that are needed for the assignment. This packet also includes a 2013-2014 calendar for the months of September-June.
