Create a bulletin board to highlight books read by students this fall.
Encourage reading with a literature bulletin board as students return back to school. Students post their name, date, recent book read and author's name on individual leaves. Consider differentiating instruction based on grade level and student needs. For example, the teacher may instruct students to draw a scene, list favorite characters, briefly summarize the plot or reflect on what they learned from selected books onto their leaves. The teacher can post a recommended book list or bulletin board guidelines onto the display for student reference. Daily reading improves comprehension and vocabulary skills, which are integral to learning across curriculum. Improve fluency and inspire students to pursue reading beyond the classroom for leisure fun and intellectual growth.
Develop reading comprehension skills as students add leaves to a reading tree for every book they explore this fall.
Supplies Used: Construction Paper, Book Lists, Scissors, Tape
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
