"Reading Makes Your Mind BLOOM" is a fun and engaging resource that can be used to motivate students to read and deepen their comprehension, story elements, and re-telling skills. This packet 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 flower 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 flower booklet – half-size (pages 3-9) and full-page (pages 9-21).

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.
