Featured Book Activity
Someday a Tree
written by Eve Bunting, illustrated by Ronald Himler
Have children create headlines for key events in Someday a Tree that could appear in a newspaper or on a news website. Printed in large letters on newsprint, these headlines can be incorporated into a bulletin board or wall display. This activity is good practice on identifying main ideas.
Saving the best headlines for numerous books can allow you to create a quiz-like display that challenges children to match headlines to books.
