Each month I send home a family homework activity. This one, for Reading Book Boxes, is done at the beginning of the year. At home, the parents will cut an empty cereal box and then the children decorate the box with craft supplies. The kids really get into this using all kinds of things to decorate with - wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, gems, glitter, duck tape, stickers, foam shapes, decorative paper - you name it! Here is what mine looks like. It was so easy to make!
I keep them on a shelf in my classroom. They are all unique! The kids can easily pick out their own book box!
The Book Boxes stay in the classroom all year. I add emergent readers that the children color on their own and then read. Do you need emergent readers? I have over 25 emergent readers in my TpT Store. You can find my emergent readers (like the one below) in my TpT Store.
My Reading Book Box Family Homework activity is available in my TpT Store. It includes the printable directions to send home with each child. You can also edit the due date.
