READING/HOLIDAYS/BULLETIN BOARDS
Sharing the Gift of Reading!

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: December 1, 2001

A fun idea during the month of December is to wrap up your favorite picture books and place them under a tree. Then invite adults such as the principal, janitor, or even a lunchroom worker to come into your room, unwrap one of the books, and read it to the class. You could call this time, "Sharing the Gift of Reading." Follow-up the story with a writing and/or drawing activity with 2 free reproducibles. (see below) One which a student writes or draws why the book that was read, would make the perfect gift for someone they know, and the other reproducible that allows students to write or draw a synopsis of what the book was about. We suggest that this "read aloud" time be done only 1-2 times a week to keep it unique. Also, that students choose which reproducible they'd like to fill out. Once students have completed this follow-up activity, place the "gifts" under a paper tree hung on your wall.
