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.

The children have the opportunity to work imaginatively, while also applying what they have learnt from reading their favourite books.Tip 1: It is worth giving the children advance warning of the lesson, so they can choose a favourite book character and bring the book to school with them.Tip 2: The social media aspect of the lesson also makes it an opportunity to discuss some internet safety issues.There is differentiation built into the lesson, with a challenge task and activity support for those who need it.The flexibility of the lesson means that I have been able to use it in Years 3 to 6, but it could also be easily adapted for younger children.Includes:*Teacher PowerPoint presentation*3 differentiated 'bookface' profile template sheets (covering lower and middle/higher ability)*Full planning, linked to English curriculumPlease see the Goldtopfox shop for more great World Book Day and general teaching resources:https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/goldtopfox
