Years ago when I was looking for a different way to have my students share details about the books they were reading, I stumbled onto this idea. I call it a comprehension cube. I think it puts a unique spin on a boring book report. I have decided to share it with others. I have been working on it for a few weeks now and it is my first attempt at doing a tutorial-of-sorts. I need a new set of eyes and a guinea pig, er…reader of mine to test it out and see what changes I might need to make to my directions.
Before you volunteer, you will need the following materials to complete this project:
6 pieces of cardstock or construction paper cut into 6in. x 6in. squares
(optional – glue stick & scissors if you want to put the cube together with my template pieces)
Are you still interested? Leave me a comment or send me an e-mail (email@example.com). I would like to have your feedback by Wednesday, if possible 🙂
Thanksgiving has passed for 2012, but that doesn’t mean you can’t talk about the things you are thankful for. You have a few more days to link up with my Thankful linky. One lucky person will win a $10 gift card to TpT.
Look at this great book sharing idea for Valentine's Day! It's called Blind Date with a Book. Students can wrap up a good book and write a description on the outside. Then others can choose a new book based on the description!A BLIND DATE WITH A BOOK! 😍 Wrap the books and write a description on each of them- have the kiddos read the descriptions and pick a book for a blind reading date! How memorable! What an amazing idea for #valentinesday! Thank you for sharing Jessica! I see so many teachers trying this out! @thegreenelementaryteacher LOVE! #books #reading #library #blinddate ...
