Are you thinking of beginning a unit on pets? Kids like to learn about pets and share stories about their pets. Check out these three ways to promote reading during a pets unit. Be sure to download your FREEBIES!
Three Reading Ideas
Idea 1: Pet Reading Log
Provide each student with a reading log to record the titles and authors of books they read about pets. There are two options provided below. Students can either write a one sentence summary about the book or they can decide if they would recommend the book to their classmate.
Idea 2: Choice Board of Activities
Offer students a choice board of activities that they can complete after they read a book on pets. Decide how many choices the students must complete.
Idea 3: Pet Bingo Card
Give each student a pet bingo card. Students read a number of books about pets. Decide whether you want your students to get a straight line or a blackout on their bingo card.
