Book Look Freebie

My class does learning centers at least once a week.  This is an easy time for me to get small groups reading while other students are engaged (and quiet).  One center I often have is a listening center.  In my classroom I have 3 iPod touches and 1 iPad, so my students use them for listening center.  I use TumbleBooks, available free through our local library.  You can also find lots of books on YouTube, but I only use those on the SmartBoard so that kids don't click on any not-so-great links.  
In the past, I have instructed my students on one must-watch book and then they could pick others if there was time left.  This was working okay, but I wanted to make sure that my students were getting something out of this center.  So, this weekend I sat down and make a couple of reflection pages.  I think I will let students chose which sheet they want to fill out.  This will teach them to reflect on stories they read, not just rush through them.   If you are interested, you can find them on my Teachers Pay Teachers account, for only $1.  Great, huh?  
Since I'm so new to this and I'm trying to get some followers, I am giving away one of these packets to anyone who leaves a comment!  If you would love to have one, just leave me a comment and tell your favorite book to read to students.  
 Thanks and enjoy!
