Writing Activity

My Book Review

Materials: paper, pencil

This activity lets your child give their opinion on their latest read.

Tell your child that many people choose what books they will read based on how people have reviewed it. When you review something, you give your opinion on it.

Ask your child to think about a book they’ve read recently. Talk to your child about the book. Was the book fiction (made-up) or was it non-fiction (not made-up)? Would they recommend the book, or tell someone else to read it? Why or why not?

Then have your child write their review! Remind them to include the name of the book and the author. Encourage them to explain why they liked the book or didn’t like it. When they’re done writing, they can add a smiley face if they liked the book or a frowny face if they didn’t!

Actividad de redacción

Critica un libro

Materiales: papel, lápiz

Esta actividad le permitirá a tu niño o niña opinar sobre lo último que leyó.

Dile a tu niño que mucha gente depende de las críticas de los libros para decidir qué libros van a leer. Cuando haces una crítica, das tu opinión sobre algo.

Pídele a tu niño que piense sobre un libro que haya leído hace poco. Hablen sobre el libro. ¿Era el libro de ficción (inventado) o era de no ficción (no inventado)? ¿Recomendaría el libro, o sea, le diría a otra persona que lo leyera? ¿Por qué sí o por qué no?

Entonces, ¡pídele a tu niño que escriba su crítica! Recuérdale que incluya el título del libro y el autor. Anímalo a explicar por qué le gustó o no el libro. Cuando termine de escribir, pueden añadir una carita feliz si le gustó el libro o una carita triste si no le gustó.
