Library Challenge Cards

Library Challenge Cards

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. 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.

Writing the story of David and Goliath Worksheet MA / LA and a short version of story to edit

Writing the story of David and Goliath Worksheet MA / LA and a short version of story to edit

This is a worksheet where the children have to rewrite the story of David and Goliath (short, picking out the main details of the story). The worksheets are differentiated for LA and MA. I gave the HA the MA worksheet and extended them by asking them deeper thinking questions in their learning journals. At the end of the worksheet there is a question for LA - asking them what they liked about the story and why. The question at the end for the MA was asking them what they found inspiring about the story and why.As a whole class we practiced writing a summary of the story together, but you can use this to edit and make even better with your children!Will save time!
