Cereal box reports

Snyders Scoop banner

Looking for a novel way for students to share favorite reads with peers? How about trying this cereal box book report idea from 3rd-grade teacher Mrs. Snyder found on her blog, Snyder’s Scoop? This clever educator not only had learners create boxes as part of their report but let them shoot commercials to “advertise” key elements of their selected books.

In A Land We Can Share: Teaching Students with Autism, my book with Kelly Chandler-Olcott, we wrote about using such an idea for learners who like to “read” texts that are not typically used or honored in a typical classroom. Do you have students who enjoy reading cereal boxes? Pamphlets? Video game directions? If so, how could you bring these texts front and center in your inclusive classroom?
