My daughters last homework for Kindergarten was to make a charter out of a paper plate from her favorite book. Well her favorite books are all the Pinkalicious books. But we recently got her the new Emeraldalicious book and that is her current favorite, so that is who she wanted to make.
She had so much fun doing this that I wanted to share the idea with all of you. It is a great project to do over the summer to help get the kids reading more. I plan on making a few more charters from different books we read over the summer. It will get my daughter more excited about reading different books so we can find new charters to make. It also gets her creative juices flowing since we only start with a paper plate and have to design around that!
What are your kids favorite books? How do you get them excited about reading?
