Product Description
Boring book reports? Not with this set! Students enjoy these fun projects that go with any novel.

Students read novels at their reading level, focusing on story elements in a project, and participate in culmination book project celebrations each month. The projects are motivating and fun while improving reading skills and tied to Common Core Standards.

The book project set and the genre posters include 136 pages of materials. Everything you need is here. There are MS Word versions as well as PDF so you can customize the projects. Read below for more specifics of this bundled set.

Students apply the story elements (character, setting, event, problem, solution, and theme) and offer opinions as they complete a different genre book project each month. Students share their projects in literature circles during project celebrations. These projects are classroom tested and all are tied to Common Core Standards for grades 3-6. I’ve used the book projects with great success and have enhanced them and added a few new projects, scoring guides, and Common Core Ties.

All projects come in both PDF and MS Word formats and include a student handout of directions, a space for name and project due date, and scoring sheets. Some projects include photos of student project examples. Some projects include extras items like timelines and other planning sheets. See the product preview to see everything included. Scoring guides are given in PDF and editable formats showing point scales and are also left blank so you can use your own scoring scale. MS Word editable versions do not include clip art, but teachers are free to add their own to these copies. Edit anything and everything about these projects for use in your reading program.
