Reading--Book Reviews and Character Collages

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Character-Collage-Directions-Grades-2-3-4-5
Students are reading up a storm!  
After reading a chapter book during silent reading time, students are required to fill out a book review.  Next, students create character collages.  These are detailed advertisements for their books.  Students share the collages with the class and take questions and comments about the book they read.  Afterwards, their collages are posted on the wall above our classroom library. 
They are awesome! 
Look carefully at the adjectives students are using.  As the year goes on, we will be doing many different types of reading projects.  The expectations to use more descriptions and writing elements will be scaffolded in.  

Check them out; more to come this week!
