This packet was designed to help younger students, kindergarten and first grade(with assistance) through second grade, to be able to read books(or have them read to them!)and keep a journal about them. The main goal is to teach the parts of a book while also encouraging comprehension of the book by keeping a journal. This packet can be used with any book, so it can be used over and over! This helps the younger student to learn about and to recognize:
-Parts of a book
-Recognizing the author and illustrator of a book
-Main and supporting characters
-Critiquing a book
This packet could be done a small group/classroom activity, literacy center activity, or fun homework assignment to be completed over the course of several days. Happy fun winter reading with your students!
