These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library. <br />
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
22 comprehension style worksheets (1 per book) that I have made based on the Rigby Star Guided Reading books. The children can complete them after or during guided reading. I will add more as I make them. <br />
Books I have covered are:<br />
Rollercoaster, Elvis and the Space Junk, Always Elephant, Clever Chick, The Gizmo's party, The Ice-cream Factory, The Woman Who Fooled the Fairies, Mantu the Elephant, The Monster is Coming, The Gizmo's trip, The Picky Prince, Count on Your Body, Quork attack, Headfirst into the Porride, The Singing Giant, Josie and the puppy, The Ambulance Service, The Perfect Pizza, Rabbit's Surprise Birthday, Peanuts, The King of the Birds and The Cherokee Little People.<br />

This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story. It is adapted from the government initiative 'Improving Childrens Writing' getting children from level 3 to level 4. I have changed it a little, so that it is also suitable for level 2 and 3 as well. Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.
