Kids Helping Kids Kosair Read-a-Thon: Suggestions for Teachers and Parents.
Crump, Claudia; Ridout, Susan Ramp
Designed for use with a full class but adaptable for individual or small-group instruction, this paper presents teachers with brief suggestions for extending the Read-a-Thon stories beyond discussing and/or writing answers to the questions at the end of the stories. Activities described in the paper include: (1) reading activities (such as "Password" and "20 Questions"); (2) listening and oral sharing activities (including "Tape Centers" and "Storytellers"); (3) art, drama and music activities (such as "Picture Sequences,""Framed Stories," and "Raps and Tunes"); (4) writing activities (such as "Points of View,""Poems and More Poems," and "Word Graffiti"); (5) health and safety activities (including "Say No" and "Futuring"); and (6) social studies activities (such as "Location Clues" and "Stereotypes").
