Made to Order QUIZine Samplings
Expecting perfect, astonishing or instant lessons, centers, think sheets, worksheets, or activities may increase your risk of resource-borne disillusionment.

Request Number Three: Read-a-Thon Craft Activities
Fluttering through First Grade Ideas (TPT pack costs $6; Ideas free)
- Fluency building bookmarks - Students take turns reading to each other, compliment each other when finished, then sign each other’s bookmarks. Would work for upper elementary too.
- “Our Favorite Books” classroom book – compile individual student book recommendations (this links to a free book review printable with options that span primary to upper elementary) into one large classroom book. Again, also applicable to upper elementary.
- Ten Apples Up on Top Hat Craft (free template) – use apples to record target skills (sight words; spelling words; part of speech words; character traits; story sequence; math fact practice etc.) then use them to decorate the hat, in a specific order (alphabetical, least to greatest, sequential) if applicable.
Make a bookworm craft
Ideas from Scholastic
- Reading Buddies out of pipe cleaners Shape pipe cleaners into various animals and then keep them close while reading
- Story Stones Paint stones with a favorite character, scene or object from a story they read
- Quilt of Knowledge Each student decorates their own panel based on a story they read. Then, combine them to make a classroom quilt.
Take One Book Recommendations (No printable, just a pic)
- Draws a picture to represent the book
- Writes six-word summaries for interested students to tear off and take
- Design a bookmark inspired by their favorite book
- Submit for judging, or simply laminate and redistribute to original creator.
- Hide golden tickets in rarely read books.
- If a student discovers one, they (quietly) bring it to the teacher for a (secret) incentive.
- Make a map of all the places around the classroom they want to read today.
- Each time they settle down to read, settle down in a new spot.
- Or change spots with each new book/chapter.
Wand Bookmarks (Any Harry Potter fans out there?)
Reading Buddy Mini Book Recommendations A little buddy holds a tiny book featuring their recommendation.
- Students independently keep track of how many pages/books they read
- Teachers periodically (hourly, at natural transitions) record how many books/pages their class has read and record it on a classroom thermometer (with classroom goal set)
- Classroom numbers reported to principal who adds them to the schoolwide thermometer and announces progress throughout the day and reports end results at the end of the day.
- The whole school reads designated books, then each student votes on their favorite.
- Each teacher could read a different book and classes could rotate through classrooms.
