PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

One of my best sellers! Use these templates year to year for any subject!

IMPORTANT - This packet has been modified and updated. The newest Bloom verbiage has been included and I've added new posters. Anyone who has purchased this packet can download the latest version, free of charge.

A Bloom Ball report is based on Blooms Taxonomy that encourages higher level thinking. Your students will have fun as they work together to write, draw, cut out and glue the edges of the circles together for these colorful reports. They make wonderful classroom displays and you'll be tempted to display them all year long! Some of my students donate them to me at the end of the year and I use them as examples for my next year's class.

High school teachers have contacted me and said that they used them with their students for science, ELA and social studies projects.
Included in this 17 page packet are: templates in color and black and white, teacher and student instructions, templates in two different sizes, and more.
This packet has instructions for a fiction book report and a bio book ball that students create about themselves.


I'm a teacher/author and offer Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, American History, Novel Packets, Grammar, Back to School, Holidays, Writing, Poetry, Spelling, Teacher forms products and more!

Take a stroll over to my blog, Teacher Park, where you'll find more teaching ideas resources, products and freebies. You can follow me on Teacher Park and on TeachersPayTeachers Thanks! Ruth

This is great! I can't wait to have my students use this. Thanks for responding to my question. I have lived where there is snow, so you can keep it.
On  February 16, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi Rdoud! Thank you so much for purchasing my Bloom Ball reports! I really appreciate your comment and rating! We had 40 inches of snow last Friday. No school until yesterday. The town snowplows couldn't handle the amount of snow, so the farmers showed up to plow our roads with their John Deere tractors and pay loaders. Our heroes! Have fun with this packet. You're going to love it! Stop by again! :)

Love this idea! Am planning to use this with my 5th graders after vacation. Are there any secrets to assembling the ball that you can share?
On  February 11, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi 47cookies! Thank you so much for purchasing my Bloom Ball reports! I prefer stapling them. I find that glue sticks aren't the best because after time, they seem to break apart. I've talked with some teachers who prefer white glue, others like stapling them together. Stapling is faster and less messy! Thanks for asking. I really appreciate your comment and rating! Thanks for stopping by. :)

I am using these with my 8th grade students. So far I have only handed out the individual sheets. They have no idea what they are going to turn into, but when they figure it out, they are going to want to hand them from the ceilings! I love this project immensely!
On  February 10, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi MissDrabik! Thank you so much for purchasing my Bloom Ball reports packet! I'm thrilled to learn you're doing the reports with 8th grade students! I'm sure you're going to have some very interesting and creative projects that your students will be proud of when they're on display. Every year I do this project, my students love it so much they want to create new reports every week! Thank you for your wonderful comment and rating! Thanks for stopping by!

Really well thought out. Used as a jumping off point to build a social studies project on local government. I teach in French so had to translate it. Great project for L.A. and I won't have to translate it then :)

On  March 28, 2013,  Jen  asked:
Hi!
I wondered how many sheets this bloom ball requires. Most instructions I've seen say to use 12 sheets of the template. This seems quite large. Can you use fewer sheets and still get a similar project outcome? (Guess you can tell I didn't do we'll in geometry in school and there are good reasons for my not teaching math). :)
Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 28, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi! In order to form a complete bloom ball,yes, you do need 12 templates. I've included templates for small and large Bloom balls and placed them so there are four templates per page (small size) and two per page for the larger ones. I did this to help save paper. :)
By the way, the kids learn very quickly how to attach them. i was amazed the first time i used my packet with them :) I guess they'll all do well in geometry. :) It wasn't my strongest subject in high school because there was a shortage of math teachers at the time, so we had a history teacher teaching it!
Thanks for asking!

I bought the math snow ball from you and suggested this. I'm looking to introduce how to write a report and this looks interesting. I noticed it was third and up. Do you think with some modifications and modeling this would work for 2nd graders?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 8, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi Rdoud! I remember you told me my Snowball Math lesson was the only time your students would have snowballs because you're in Florida! :) That is one of the cutest responses I've had! Bloom ball reports can easily be modified for second graders. The activities in the biography report I included asks students to write their birthday on one circle and draw a picture. Another one is to write a sibling's or relative's name and draw a picture. Another one is to write something they love to do, or someone they love.. And then there are the questions "Who feels..." (write three adjectives to describe their feelings like sad, happy) "Who Gives..." Answers could be "Who gives a lot of attention to their puppy" Who loves to give hugs..." And one that asks where they'd like to visit... Another is "My dream is to ...." (examples are: To be President, to be an actor, etc. Another one is "My Favorite Activity".On all of the templates, they would write and draw pictures. The fiction book report that I included could be modified a bit but I've known second grade teachers who've used it. Thank you so much for asking! I'm a bit late replying because we're now in the middle of a blizzard and we lost power for a couple of hours, but it came back on! YAY!! If you want some snow, I'll upload some to you! :)

Hi Ruth,
This packet looks amazing, and I would probably be interested in purchasing. However, I use the revised Bloom's verbiage--does your packet include the old Bloom's taxonomy verbs or the revised verbs? It's hard to tell from the thumbnail.
Thanks,
Eve

On  January 14, 2013Ruth S. answered:
Hi Eve! It's so ironic you asked me that question. I've been modifying my Bloom packet all week. I'll be posting it tomorrow or tomorrow night. If, by any chance, you purchased it already, you will get a message from TpT telling you it's been revised. At that point, you can download it again, and there's no charge. I'm using new software so the entire packet has a different look and the revised Bloom's verbiage has been added. Thanks for asking!

Ruth, I bought the unit Bloom Ball Book Report. I tried to print it and all but the first 7 pages will print. It keeps saying damaged file. Can you give me some feedback on how I can print the whole thing. I tried several ways but to no success. I really love this unit.

On  October 14, 2012Ruth S. answered:
Hi Mecomeaux I'm so sorry you're having problems printing my packet! I've had many, many teachers purchase this packet and no one has contacted me about any problems. What you should do is contact TpT and tell them the problem you're having. On each TeachersPayTeachers page, at the very bottom, is a "Contact Us" tab. Click on that and it will ask you to create a ticket. TpT is very prompt in replying to any questions. Explain the problem you're having. Copy and paste this URL into the note you write to them. It will save them time looking for the packet.

I'm sure they'll let me know if there's a problem with it and I'll upload it again. Keep in touch, ok? I really want you and your students to have fun putting these together! :)

Hi Lojuana I don't have a picture of one at the moment, but if you do a Google Search (images) and type Bloom Balls in the box, you'll see pictures of different ones. Here's the URL if you want to copy and paste it in the box. Have fun!

On  March 3, 2012The Middle School Mouth (TpT Seller) asked:
Are your Bloom Ball Reports based on the original Blooms or Revised Blooms? I teach in NC and all of our Common Core/Essential Standards are now all based on Revised Blooms.

Thank you for your time!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 3, 2012Ruth S. answered:
Hi Randy. Fantastic question! You're the first one to ask this question. When I created this for my students I used the original Blooms which is what you see in my store. Now that more and more states are adopting the Common Core Standards, I've considered making the revised edition. I haven't done it yet, though because of the great number of downloads I've had with this one and the fact that I haven't had anyone ask about it, except you :)
What grade/grades do you teach?
