Family Reading Projects

Are you reading a book with your family? Here are some fun activities you can do together! If you  make something, we'd love to see you present it in class! 

  1. Create a sculpture of a character. Use any combination of soap,  wood, clay, sticks, wire, stones, old toy pieces, or any other object. 
  2. Write a diary that one of the story’s main characters might have  kept before, during, or after the book’s events. Remember that the  character’s thoughts and feelings are very important in a diary. 
  3. Write a book review, as it would be done for a newspaper. 
  4. Construct a diorama (three-dimensional scene which includes  models of people, buildings, plants, and animals) of one of the main  events of the book. 
  5. Write and perform an original song that tells the story of the book.
  6. Design a book jacket for the book. 
  7. Draw a comic strip of your favorite scene. 
  8. Write a different ending for your story. 
  9. Make a timeline of all events in the book. 
  10. Make a poster advertising your book so someone else will want to read it too!
