Product Description
We all know the adage "April Showers Brings May Flowers" - well this is a fun twist on the expression that can be used to motivate students to read and deepen their comprehension and re-telling skills.

"April Showers Bring...Reading Hours" is a fun and engaging resource that includes everything you need to assign, complete, and assess a project that can be used with ANY BOOK! (picture book or chapter book)

The project asks your students to create a raindrop booklet that assesses their reading comprehension and understanding of basic story elements. The pages include:
1. Cover
2. Setting
3. Main Characters
4. Retelling: Beginning
5. Retelling: Middle
6. Retelling: End
7. My Favorite Part
8. Problem/Solution
9. Theme
10. Something New I Learned
11. My Rating of the Book (1-5 stars) and Why

The packet also includes a rubric for the teacher to use when grading the project.

Note: There are two versions of the raindrop booklet – half-size (pages 3-9) and full-page (pages 9-22).

This would make an excellent bulletin board display! Also, it can be a wonderful way for the students to get book recommendations from their classmates.

This is in a series of monthly book report templates.
