This download includes 7 reading and sharing activities that you can do with your students. These activities can take as much time as you would like. Most activities work well in a 30-40 minute block but could very easily be extended.
All activities (with the exception of pancake book scenes) require minimal set-up.
I use these activities as sharing opportunities and we do one a month. However, you could also use these for book project. Most activities will use CCSS standards from reading and speaking/listening.
- Speed Dating
- Book Bistro
- Notice & Note Bookmarks and Group Talk
- Instagram Book Reviews
- Pancake Book Scenes
- Graffiti Cards
You will download a zipped file that includes .doc and pdf versions of each activity (except Instagram Book Reviews). To keep the original formatting, you may need to download a free front from Skyfonts OR just use the pdf version. Because of the open-ended nature of these activities, answer keys and rubrics are not included. Have fun!
