In today's world of education, giving students choice is always the clear path to take!
This Book Report Menu Kit is just what you need to get your students excited about book reports again. With 17 projects for your students to choose from, they are sure to find ones that will engage them in reading once again.
Also included are four pages of teacher instructions and suggestions. I have described in detail how to explain to students expectations for each project as well as shared tip and hints that I have gleaned over the past 9 years of use.
My students LOVE this classroom tested-student approved format, and I know yours will too!
Included in the kit is:
-4 pages of teacher instructions/suggestions for use
-4 versions of the Book Report Menu brochure (2 color, 2 black and white) in monthly and quarterly formats to meet your teaching timeline.
Go ahead, start making book reports exciting again!
Happy Reading and Presenting~

Love this book report menu kit. I've used it three times this semester! It has given me great ideas to use in my classroom. I used it three times, but not the fourth and my students are sad that they have to write a plain old book report essay. Thank you!
I am so pleased to hear that you and your kiddos have enjoyed this kit! Now you need to try the Book Report Dodecahedron! WAHOO! :) Have a wonderful day and thank you SO much for your kind feedback.
Thanks so much! I am confident that your kiddos will love it! :)

This packet is GREAT! I can't wait to give it to my students for ideas. I wish that one of the Masters wouldn't include Months or Quarters. I would like to just hand out the brochure with ideas without feeling like I have to do it on a time period.
Thanks for your kind and thoughtful feedback. If you would like to contact me at email@example.com, I would be happy to have you tell me exactly what you would like altered and send it to you. :) I appreciate your thoughts and would love to help you out. :)
Thanks for your feedback I am positive that these will be just the thing you need to help your kiddo create fantastic culminating projects.
Have a wonderful new year and please stop by my shop again soon.

These worked great we have already done one book report each-big hit
Thanks for your feedback. I am SO pleased that this kit has been a hit! My kiddo have always loved having the choice and I love not having to see the same project 30 times... ha ha.
Have a happy new year and please stop by again soon.
I am excited YOU are excited. I have used this kit for years and have had outstanding results with it. Thanks for your feedback and excitement. (Enjoy the book report dodecahedron kit as well! wahoo!) Have an amazing day and come again soon.

So much more relevant than the book reports suggested by our school. Thanks!
Thanks for your feedback and comment. I hope this will provide you and your students with some fun and engaging alternatives to the "traditional" report. Have a very happy New Year and please stop by again soon.
Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate your kind words. I KNOW the kiddos will love having the ability to choose projects!
Have a fantastic day and I hope you will stop by again soon.
Thank you for organizing the book report activities. This is an easy format for children to follow and me too. I especially like the variety. My students will have fun selecting a project for their books.
I love that you printed the brochure on special paper. What a fun idea. I hope you get to enjoy many varied and engaging presentations this year!
Thanks for your feedback and please stop by again soon.

What a fun way to provide choices to my students!!!
Thanks for your feedback. I wish you great success with your students. My classes have loved using this menu for years. In fact past students STILL will come to my room and talk about their book reports.

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. I appreciate it! :)
I hope your class enjoys using this kit as much as my classes have. Have a fantastic school year and I hope you stop by again soon.

This looks awesome! I wasn't thrilled about the prospect of 24 identical book reports. Love the choices! Thank you!
Thanks for the kinds words. I agree that having to sit through the same project from each student bores the other students (and me, honestly) quickly. Hence the reason this kit was created. I hope you find great success with this kit this year. Have a great day and please stop by again soon! :)
I am pleased that your students are going to enjoy this kit. I have used it for many years and have found it to be a refreshing way to get my students excited and involved. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for the feedback and please come back again soon!
Thanks for your enthusiasm and your kind words. I have enjoyed using this menu for almost 13 years now. My students have been truly engaged in book reports over the years because they get to choose! I wish you much success. Have a great day, and please, stop by again soon! :)

Sorry to keep repeating the same feedback, but your stuff all looks really good and I can't wait to use it with my students this year!
I LOVE your feedback. I am so pleased to hear you like my resources. I am excited to hear how things turn out. I will have a Christmas version of the dodecahedron out before the holidays as well. I hope you are following my store so you can be informed of all my new goodies as I release them. :-) Have a super fantastic school year- and please stop by again soon!
I have found that having lots of choice makes kids more willing and excited to participate. I hope you have a successful year. Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback and please stop by again soon. :)
I love your description of my Book Report Menu Kit. These projects are definitely not the traditional formats. That is what I love about them. Thanks for your feedback. Hope you will stop by again soon!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Hello! I just downloaded your product, and I really like the options that the menu gives to the students; however, while looking at all of them, I began thinking of how I would grade each one. I started feeling overwhelmed thinking about making rubrics for each one, which, in my opinion, would be the best. The "song" option, for instance. Do you have suggestions on how to grade them? Thanks!
Thanks for this great question. I appreciate your concern about grading. I made one rubric that covered ALL the projects. I agree that a separate one for each would be ideal, but found that by having a rubric that was 50% presentation and 50% project, I was able to grade in a consistent way. I am always hesitant to include rubrics because all teachers have a difference of opinion when it comes to points and levels.
My rubric if VERY basic. If you would like me to share a copy with you so you can get an idea of what I did, you can e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I would love to share it with you! :)
I hope this helps. If you don't like my rubric, you could always make rubrics as students choose those projects so you would only be making a few at a time.
