What is a Book Spin?
A "Book Spin" is a collection of activities that correlates back to a specific book. The idea for this project came about after an exciting response after Dot Day - a "theme" day that was centered around a book. We saw teachers doing so many cool and creative things that we wanted to do more with the idea of a theme day that centers around a book. The Book Spin presented here was a collaborative project created by specialists, consultants, coaches, and teachers in Godfrey-Lee Public Schools.
For each Book Spin, you may choose to either read the book out loud with students or there is also a recording of the book that is read aloud and shared online. After reading/listening to the book with your students, take an opportunity to explore one of the curriculum spins based on the book. There are a variety of different activities to choose from! These spins are meant to be starting points - feel free to use them as they are, modify them, or create your own!
