LITERACY #6 Mixing It Up

By | July 9, 2017

Summer! The perfect time to carry around a book and spend time with favorite or new characters and subjects. This is # 6 in my 8-part series on Summer Literacy.

Here are a hodge-podge of ideas to keep reading fresh/changing.

In fiction:

Read using different voices for different characters.

Use/Make puppets and share the story as a play.

For non fiction:

Read the pages like a news reporter.

Make a poster to show the most interesting facts you learned.

Use the book as a way to discuss tables of contents, glossaries, captions, graphs and charts, photographs, etc. details common in non fiction books.
