Reading Strategies

  • Make a comic strip of your story.
· Make a display of the time period of your book.
· Make a banner of cloth or paper about your book.
· Create a movie announcement for your book.
· Create a radio ad for your book. Write out the script and tape record it as it would be presented. Don’t forget background music!
· Make a "wanted" poster for one of the characters or objects in your book. Include the following: (a) a drawing or cut out picture of the character or object, (b) a physical description of the character or object, (c) the character’s or object’s misdeeds (or deeds?), (d) other information about the character or object which is important, (e) the reward offered for the capture of the character or object.
  • Dress up as one of the characters and tell the story from a first person point of view.
