Product Description

Celebrate reading with your students with this activity packet of printables, ideas and activities. The lessons focus on multicultural and diverse children's literature and can be used with students in grades K-5. Use this activity pack for Read Across America or any time you want to promote reading diverse children's books. The slogan for this year's Read Across America is celebrating a nation of diverse readers. The theme of these printables is One World, Many Readers.

What is included in this activity pack:

  • Reading logs to encourage reading at home. There are 3 different reading logs. One for younger grades, one for older grades and a generic weekly reading log. The reading logs also come in an editable PowerPoint so you can change the directions to suit your needs. Only the directions are editable.
  • 9 color posters to display with quotes about diversity, respect and kindness
  • Bookmarks to hand out to students (color and black and white)
  • Random Acts of Kindness - cards and posters. Students can fill out a card every time someone is kind to them. Use the cards to create a kindness display. There are a variety of cards in both color and black and white. There are posters you can use for the display as well.

Lesson Plans/Printables

I created a few basic lessons on culture, diversity and kindness on three different levels: K/1, 2/3 and 4/5

  • Cut and paste kindness sort (grades K/1)
  • Kindness fill-in poster (grades K/1)
  • 5-page mini book that gives the definition of culture and diversity. It also talks about respect and accepting others for their differences. (grades 2/3)
  • Worksheet: students write/draw how they are the same and how they are different from one of their classmates. There is also a similar worksheet in a Venn diagram format. (grades 2-5)
  • One-page biography of Malala Yousafzai for fourth and fifth grade students. Includes a reading comprehension page. There is also a worksheet with three quotes from Malala. Students will read the quote and write about what it means. (grades 4/5)

Please download the preview before purchasing. The preview shows just about every page. Please contact me if you have any questions.
