I Read A Book

I Read A Book Activity and Center is a wonderful way to create an instant non-fiction reading center in your classroom. Pick out 4-8 books focusing on the subject you are studying such as biographies, science, social studies, poems, tall tales, or geography, put them in a tub or basket, and place the instructions and student work with it.  Give a short lesson on how to use the center and forms, and poof, you are ready to go.  This is a great way to immerse your students in expository reading and writing and get them ready for Common Core Standards. Make sure the reading level of the books is appropriate and not too high!  You can download this great center from my TeachersPayTeachers page for $1.00. Enjoy and let me know how it worked for you, Heidi
