Promote reading while comparing and contrasting favorite books.
Using Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, invite students to make a list of their top 5 books they've read. Encourage students to reread all five, taking notes on the themes, settings, characters, and ideas that stood out. Ask students to tell a book sharing group why they would recommend the books. Compare and contrast the content of the class favorites.
Students design a poster--perhaps for Library Lover's Month in February, Library Week in April, or National Library Month in November--to publicize their five recommended books. Use Crayola Washable Markers to write the titles and authors of books in bold lettering.
Look through recycled magazines to find eyes, ears, a nose, a smile, arms, hands, feet, torso, and legs to make a collage image of a library lover entering a library. Cut out pictures with Crayola Scissors and arrange on posters. Glue with a Crayola Glue Stick. Add details with markers.
Design the library in the background with colored pencils. If a library lover is entering the front door, include a sign, windows, steps, and landscaping. If a library lover is in the building, include shelves of colorful books, tables and chairs, and computers.
Allow time for students to present their posters and promote their favorite five books to small groups of classmates.
