Have students dress up like any character in the story.
Say it right
Have students take turns coming to the front of the class. Each student will be told to say a sentence of your choosing in a voice that conveys a particular emotion, also of your choosing. For example, you may have a student say, "I tried to do my homework" in an excited voice or a sleepy voice. Other students in the class will try to guess the emotion being conveyed.
Make a timeline
Have students make a timeline of the events in the story. As an alternative, make this a class project so that each student adds a detail to the timeline.
Act it out
Have students act out a scene from the story. Consider breaking students into groups, and assigning groups different scenes so the entire book can be acted out.
