Product Description

I use this pennant in my own classroom as an activity that encourages my students to reflect on their reading interests. After reading a book such as Wild About Books or The Best Book to Read, which both highlight book selection based on a reader's interests we reflect and talk about the "the kind of readers" each of us are. Then, my students create their pennant. While the reflection and activity are both very valuable, I believe that the real power comes from my students sharing their pennants with the class. ALL of my students have the opportunity to share in the days that follow, they start off by saying "I am the kind of reader who likes to read books about...". What is so powerful about this is that ALL of my students inherently refer to themselves as a reader! They may not all walk through my classroom door identifying as a reader, but through this and other conversations, lessons and activities I have the opportunity to come alongside them and shape their positive reading identities.

After all of my students share, I place our pennants on the wall up above our classroom library... meaningful classroom "decor" that reflects each of my students and was created by them!

I hope that you find this helpful and purposeful for using in your own classroom. If you do, I'd greatly appreciate your feedback on this resource! As always, I love to see photos of my resources in action so be sure to tag me or message me @theprimarypal!
