All About the Author
: Looking to have your students do an author study? If so, this is a great little research project for your students. These author posters would be a great year round bulletin board to hang near your classroom library.
The poster is 8.5 x 11 (landscape).
The sections for the students to fill out are:
*# of Books written by Author
*My favorite book by the author
*It's my favorite because....
*Fun Facts about the Author (3)
*Common Themes found in his/her books
*Cool Character created by the Author
*Trait of that Character
*Evidence from a story to prove the trait
*portrait of the Author (could be drawn or printed off and glued)
*Quote from the Author
*If I could interview the author, 2 questions I would ask....
Encourage your kids to fill in the entire writing space... offering other info, elaborating on the sentence starter, sharing more, etc.
Use as a center activity or even as a homework assignment. Use it in your classroom however you would like.
