I divided the students into pairs and let them choose a picture book from my library (because this was a one-period-long activity). They read the book together, discussed their "questions to ponder" (character traits, sequencing details, problem-solution, etc.) and then completed a "Snow is Falling...Books are Calling" activity:
The students were each given a blank template
On the right side of the book, the students write: the Title, Author, Genre, and Theme
On the left side of the book, the students write one sentence for the beginning, the middle, and the end
In the speech bubble, the students write an advertisement from the book’s perspective.
For example, “Read me! If you like books with fun, realistic characters and an intriguing plot, you’ll love me!”
Here's a sample using the book Finn Cooks by Birte Miller
Here's our class bulletin board - aren't they cute?!
