Finishing Strong! with Book In A Day

finish strongI can’t believe that the school year is almost over!  In an earlier post I talked about making sure the kids had work to do as we wind up the school year.  And our team makes SURE of that!  Although the kids look at us like we’re crazy, I think they crave the structure and discipline that we provide as we wind down the school year.  Another favorite way to keep kids occupied and engaged is to do a “Book In A Day”.

With the Book In A Day, we read one book all day long.  Each period covers different sections of the book. We do activities with each section and then the students compare and contrast the movie.  The kids love it!  During Christmas time, we read The Best Christmas Pageant Ever and this year for the end of the year we read How to Eat Fried Worms!

My The Best Christmas Pageant Ever Book In a Day unit is already in my TpT store now.  I’m finishing up my How to Eat Fried Worms unit and would love some feedback.  If you’re interested, please leave me a comment below with your email address and I will send it to you.  I’d really appreciate it!

Until the next time,

  1. I would love to preview your unit on How to Eat Fried Worms! I have 4 1/2 days of school left and would love to read the book and do the activities.

  2. I do a similar unit with Summer of the Monkeys. Would love to see what you create for How to Eat Fried Worms.

  3. What an interesting idea for the summer. I am not a new blogger but I just signed my first contract and will be teaching 6th grade next year. I am hunting for bloggers to follow and ideas. I am currently hunting for good read alouds and task cards.

    Can’t wait to read more about you!
