Me As A Reader Poster

Draw an outline of you and draw a face to show how reading makes you feel. Inside write or draw pictures of how you feel about reading. On the outside, draw or write about what you need to become a ‘good reader’.


Why not create a Reading River. Draw, cut, stick or write about all the different reading you do throughout your day. I'm sure it's not just books you've been reading!

Here are some examples.
