Make reading an interactive and exciting experience for learners in your classroom and their families at home! Poppin' Reading has everything you need to promote interactive reading and critical thinking at school and home.
I created this product because I wanted to make book talks in my classroom feel like adult book clubs! I wanted all of my kiddos to feel excited, motivated, included, and confident during book talks. I also wanted something that I could model, and they could use independently or at partner reading centers. I created separate components for fiction and for non-fiction so they can be used for both genres. The fiction set is done with clipart and the non-fiction set is done with photographs!
This set includes materials for teachers, including instructional ideas, book suggestions, and giant display pieces for bulletin boards or focus walls. It also includes materials for small groups or partner work, including mini popcorn pieces with and without pictures, popcorn bucket labels, partner book talk directions, and printables for fiction and non-fiction. One of my favorite elements is the Popcorn Parents page for parents that gives reading tips and ideas for having a Popcorn Reading Party at home.
Teaching kiddos to think critically about books and "go beyond the text" and can be challenging, but Poppin' Reading provides the support needed to help them build their independence and confidence. For a truly special event, pop some real popcorn for your learners to enjoy as they have a book talk with a partner or small group.
