Reading: This pack is perfect to use any time you want to get kids thinking about reading. One time might be during March if you celebrate Read Across America® here in the US.
I am calling this pack a "Pattern Picture". I also sell "Pattern Portraits" in my store that have portraits of famous people in history, which are formatted the same way. Once your students make these, you can leave them up to decorate your classroom for the remainder of the year if you choose to.

What are Pattern Pictures? They are fun themed pictures with patterns behind the image. When students color the patterns in a variety of different colors, the finished product is whimsical and fun. They can then color the main image that sits in front of the patterns. These are sure to add colorful pizzazz to your classroom. For the most pep from your pictures, tell your students to use lots of different colors and try not to have two of the same colors touching.
This pack includes a "Pattern Picture" coloring sheet that says "Reading" and another that says "I love (hear shape for love) Reading", a pennant for both of those, writing paper formatted to be glued to the coloring sheet or the pennants (The extra-long banner option is neat!).
Maybe for the writing paper part, you can have them do a book report summary. You could also have them write about some strategies they have learned to help them while reading. You may even want them to write about the importance of reading and how being a good reader can help them in life. Use if however you would like.
See the thumbnails and preview to get a better idea of what is included.
For my famous people "Pattern Portraits", if you would like me to consider making that you think many people could benefit from, please send me a message :-) No promises, but I will gladly consider any.
Please... if you ever notice anything in my products that needs to be corrected, such as a date or any other factual information, please send me a message before you rate the product. I do my best to research thoroughly and provide historical facts. I can look back over and have a new copy uploaded fairly quickly.
Also, if you notice typos or anything else, that is appreciated too. Even with several sets of eyes looking over my work, at times a word can be missed. Thanks so much ahead of time.
