what a smart teacher!!!! pinner says: My latest ploy-- getting my kids into more non-fiction. I'll post a crazy fact a day, and if they can bring in a fact for me and show me where they read it (any non-fiction resource, print or digital) I'll put it up for the day with their name. I'm hopeful I can hook them! {image only}

Literacy Fair--Instead of having students put on only a science fair, they can have a classroom book fair. The students can incorporate plots, characters, opinions, and instruct their peers where to get the book. The students have fun sharing their ideas and other students are engaged to read their friend's books.
