Response to Literature Posters, Prompts: Monsters Talk Books!
For guided reading, family reading, literacy centers, and task cards for response to reading~
Are your kids MONSTER crazy? Are you working on responding to literature? Are you having book talks, a book club, or a reading night? These monster themed posters will encourage critical thinking responses.
16 large posters (and 16 small task card size posters) guide your students with thinking, talking, and writing about their reading.
Use in guided reading groups, literacy centers, or a bigger event such as a Family or School Reading Night.
Monsters Talk About Books is a packet of posters and prompts that can be used to encourage kids to think about their reading and share. These hysterically funny monsters will motivate your students to ask and answer questions about literature (oral or written response) using critical thinking skills, and such skills as making connections, predicting, compare and contrasting characters, and thinking about author's purpose.
Note: This is an all-color poster packet for the purpose of eye-catching appeal. But you may find it more economical to print in gray scale. Black and white can still be attractive. For durability and long-lasting wear, laminate the pages on cardstock or sturdy paper. The small cards come in color and black and white.
*5 Monster “Ad” Posters for book talks, book club, reading group, literacy station, or for posting on bulletin boards, or hosting a Family Reading Night (lots of possibilities!)
*16 Monster Posters for reading response, writing prompts, book reports, literature circle oral response prompts, reading journals, or binder covers
*16 Small Monster Cards (color) with the same prompts (for games, individual activities)
*16 black and white cards (grayscale for economical printing)
