This print-and-go resource includes everything you need to assign, complete, and assess a fun and engaging project to be completed after reading any book!

Here's how it works: To complete this project, have your students choose a book to read. Then they will write a short summary of the book from the first-person perspective of the main character. Give each student a large piece of butcher paper. The students will draw a picture of the main character and cut out the face so that they can stand behind the paper and speak as if they were that character. They will present their book summaries to the class.
