1) Silently read & write questions for others (Battle of the Books)
2) Rewrite your favorite part of the novel from another character's perspective.
3) Create a reader's theater script of your favorite part.
Here's one student example for her favorite part in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:

She made it her own by combining characters from two novels!
She used Rob and Sistene from The Tiger Rising and Percy and Annabeth from The Lightning Thief.
I love watching them interact with their material in new and exciting ways. It's wonderful when they make connections with and between texts!
