Reading Project Cards

I was given a set of these book project cards (I'm sure there's a better name for, but I can't think of anything more clever...) a couple years ago from my teacher-friend, Cindi. I like to pull them out every once in a while during guided reading to give students a fun way to demonstrate their comprehension.

I set the stack of cards on the table and tell my students to:
  1. Read their assigned guided reading book with their group.
  2. Write a summary of the book using the four target words: first, then, next, last.
  3. Choose a project card and complete (I let them choose to do a group project or an individual project).
  4. Turn their projects and guided reading books into me and receive their new book.
I like this for a couple of reasons: it let's students have some choice in how they demonstrate their knowledge, allows them to use their creativity, and keeps them busy while I do guided reading with my small groups.

Here are some of the finished projects:
