The activities are geared for grades 2 through 5. They cover all the essential reading skills such as these:

Here's a preview of a few of the activities for you.
Here's a telephone poem. Using your phone number, a poem is created. If the first number in your phone number is an 8, they the first line of your poem (based upon your reading) needs to have 8 words. I think you get the idea!
This is a character map. Students turn the stick figure into their character and record their thoughts as to what the character thinks, feels, does, etc. It's a real comprehension booster and reaches the visual learners.
This setting map reminds students that the setting of the story is not only where, but WHEN the story takes place. It also makes them think about if they'd enjoy a visit to the setting in the story.
This activity asks students to record their thinking in response to selected passages in the text. They record the text on the book icons and their thoughts in the speech balloon icons.
I hope you find this bundle useful. Hope you all have a great week!
