This booklet is great for any book you are doing with your class or in small groups. This booklet is comprised of over 15 after-reading comprehension activities. Included in the booklet are text connection activities, vocabulary graphic organizers, summarizers and character descriptions. Students will have an opportunity to write letters recommending the book, and illustrate. There are also opportunities for the students to come up with their own questions about the book, a strategy for comprehension and retention. This booklet is easy enough for student-guided novel groups, or would work great for parents volunteers. I use it myself for whole-group instruction too. Use it again and again and soon, students will be doing these strategies automatically.
Whether you are looking for a way to spice up your small reading groups, looking for something parent volunteers can do, or wanting a new activity for you whole class... This booklet is sure to do the trick!
