Book Report Craftivity - Book Report for Fiction
Get your students thinking about their reading with this fun anytime book-tivity for fiction books. You can use this book craftivity to replace traditional book reports, or have your students complete reader response questions in a fun format. You can use this for read alouds, shared reading, guided reading, or independent reading.
Students will answer the 12 questions on the book panels (3 illustrations and 9 open-ended reader response questions). Reader response questions center around plot events, climax, problem/solution, characterization, theme, making connections, setting, summarization, and more. Providing evidence from the text to support answers is also required to answer the questions.
This resource contains options for two different sizes of books – one on full sheets (great for display in a larger area and writing longer answers), and one on half sheets (great for smaller display areas and shorter answers). Print only the size you need. I have also included a blank template for both sizes. You can use this blank template to add in your own questions (or differentiate the questions for the different levels of students in your class), or use as a cover page in case you want to assemble the craftivity into a flip-book format rather than a 3D book.
A rubric is also included for formative or summative assessment.
You have three different options for printing (you want your books to be sturdy enough to stand on their own):
- Print on white construction paper
- Print on cardstock
- Print on regular paper, then glue onto construction paper and cut out around the book shape
For easier completion, be sure students complete each page BEFORE they assemble the book.
This resource is also available for Nonfiction or informational texts: Book Report Craftivity for Nonfiction Texts
