Book Activities in Action
The great thing about these book activities is they offer many options for completion. You can have students work independently, in small center groups, or as a whole group. Some ideas for using each activity are below, but you are free to use them in whatever way works best for you and your students.
The sequencing broom and hats work well in a whole group to recall the order of the story. You can orally recall the sequence of the story as students add the story characters to their hats or brooms.
The character hats and sticks are another whole group option. Students can retell the story by acting it out for the class.
Small Center Groups
Setting up small center groups will allow students to complete multiple activities in a certain time frame.
The writing, rhyming, and counting centers included in this pack work well for small center groups. Students can rotate through the activities and show their learning through phonics, writing, and math.
The color by codes, journal prompts, graphic organizers, and other no prep printables give you plenty of independent work options.
You can give students a choice of activities, use them as early finisher options, or send them home for family fun.
