Classroom Considerations

  • The lesson requires a classroom copy of Helen Lester's Tacky and the Winter Games
  • The "New Book Cover" activity option assumes writers know how to write a summary
Pros

  • The templates for the vocabulary cards included the definitions
  • Readers are asked to justify their book rating
  • The activity menu provides equally weighted options
Cons

  • The definitions should be edited to match the number, tense, and part of speech of the vocabulary word
