Product Description
One Crazy Summer Creative Text Messaging Activity Cell Phones
Common Core Reading: #3, 6

This is a 5-page reading comprehension activity that will work with the novel One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia. This activity will have your students send "text" messages to the author, a character in the story, a friend about a favorite part, and a teacher about what he/she liked about the story. I have found this to be a very enjoyable activity that encourages comprehension of the story.

Each of the 7 activities includes a detailed description of what is expected. An example activity is when students are asked to text a character. The directions state: You will send a short text message to one of the characters in the story that you are reading (or have read). You can use some of the text abbreviations from the front page or you can create your own. Your message should contain at least one detail/fact/event from the story that would relate to that specific character. When you are done, you will need to explain your text message. If you think you need more space, then write the message on an index card and then staple it to this page. Be sure in your explanation to include what any abbreviations stand for. Your explanation should be at least three sentences in length.

Included in the packet is a template cell phone for each activity, along with over 30 text abbreviations for the students to use.
