Movies That were Books First Reading Display

(0)
31 examples of books that have been turned into popular films to get your students into reading. This would make an amazing wall display with a title and subheading included in the package! I would use this as a challenge to my students by asking them their favourite film on the display and asking them to read it by the end of the year. At the end of the year get them to write a review and use the same display the next year with reviews! Some examples of the book adaptations included are: -Jurassic Park -Die Hard -Trainspotting -The Social Network -The Silence of the Lambs -Mrs. Doubtfire I have aimed this resource at lots of different age groups so if you are using this at a primary school please check to make sure all of the titles are appropriate (For example: The Silence of The Lambs), there are, however, lots titles that are appropriate for primary level like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Please feel free to leave a comment if you liked it or if you have any constructive criticism!
