Download my sample version of the project cards: HERE!
I set the stack of cards on the table and tell my students to:
- Read their assigned guided reading book with their group.
- Write a summary of the book using the four target words: first, then, next, last.
- Choose a project card and complete (I let them choose to do a group project or an individual project).
- 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:
