For I Love to Read Month? Instead of having students do a standard book report, teachers can have them put on a reading fair. A reading fair is similar to a science fair but with books instead. A great visual arts project in my opinion.
extra- This is a list of Pixar (and other) cartoon shorts that could be used to teach reading strategies. There are also graphic organizers to go with them. What a great way to get (and keep) the kids' attention!
