Cutting and Pasting their Way to Reading Stamina

By the time you get to November, hopefully you've got students reading away!  But sometimes you need to provide a little more incentive to keep them reading.  This is a fun activity that I've used with my students over Thanksgiving break.  
Cornucopia Reading Activity
Decide how long you want students to read each day.  For sixth graders, we usually decide on 30 minutes.  Each vegetable or fruit in the packet has a suggestion on it:
  • read on the floor
  • read in your pajamas
  • read while eating a snack
  • read in the bathtub
As students complete those, they color, cut, and glue the item into the cornucopia.  

When students return to school, reward them with apple cider and pretzels or popcorn to celebrate!
