Places you will go

Clip to ScrapBook #10

I almost forgot one of my favorite March reading activities. For the whole month, starting March 2ish...
I photocopy a bunch of suitcase pages... four suitcases to a page. On each suitcase there is room for the student to write their name, the title of the book, and where the story takes place.

To start this activity we read Oh the PLaces you Will go. When a student finishes a book at home or school, they take a suitcase and write the info. Then I add the suitcase to their "suitcase collector" loop. Just one of those round clips.

By the end of the month, the student can see all of the places they have been to when they read.

They get a kick of seeing how many places they have been, seeing where their friends have been... You can use it in math too. You can graph the info to see how many different places everyone has been to.
