This 6 Book BUNDLE of Picture Book Companions is just what you need! You will get TONS of print-and-go activities for each picture book, saving you the valuable time you already don’t have to spare. 

This BUNDLE includes 97 no-prep activities. The included reading activities are best for students in 2nd – 5th grades and focus on applying crucial reading skills, digging deeper into the text, and critical thinking. Quick and easy setup, plus clear student directions, makes these activities perfect for centers or substitute days, too!

Students will dig into characterization; identify story elements; determine theme; sequence events from the story; identify descriptive language; practice reading the text and illustrations; determine how the setting affects the plot and character development; find meaning and illustrate figurative language; investigate and analyze symbolism within the illustrations, and so much more! The included activities were designed to encourage students to use higher-level thinking skills, require students to provide text evidence to support their thinking, and challenge them to provide their own opinions and/or perspective.

This resource is for extension read-aloud activities only. The books are not included.
