I made this activity to send my students off for the summer with a reading buddy and a reminder that "Reading Rocks!" Included are instructions for making the reading rock buddies. You will need to purchase a bag of rocks for the craft. I have also included 2 different journal covers and the option of blank pages or pages with reading response questions.
This activity can be done ANY time of year! Everyone needs a reading buddy:) The response journal would be a great addition for a writing center during literacy block.
