This is a wonderful resource for middle school reading teachers. Hands-on projects make books so much easier to comprehend for students and this book has great, fun ideas. My students love pop-up books and when they can make their own they develop a new love for reading. That's just one of many inventive, interesting projects in this book. I recommend it for all elementary and middle school teachers.

The activities in this book at great for getting students excited about their independent or class novels. The projects do take some time to complete. Great to use every once in awhile but not everyday.

I am using this book with some high third grade readers. They love the chance to do something more open-ended other than read a book and answer worksheets. Try it!

Scholastic has excellent resources. This is one I am able to use with Elementary and Middle School English languge students as they learn the elements of a story. The activities are engaging and easy to follow. It's great book to have in your teacher Tool Kit.

I'm loving this book, it has fun activities I can use with my 6th graders to enhance ELA and Lit. class. Each lesson is engaging and incorporates creative learning. I like that some of the lessons are short (15 mins) mini-lessons, while others are 1 class period, still others are multi-day lessons. Each activity is designed is the following fashion:
1. How to use this activity
2. Objectives
3. Time/Length
4. Materials needed
5. Step-by-step directions
