I love to have my students always reading a great book! When you want to check in with their pleasure literature reading, this book report is a fun and relatively quick assignment. I have provided a student rubric so they can revise and monitor their own progress.
Go over with the class how you would like them to fill out the report before they start reading the book they will be using. This way, they know the important elements and what they should be focussing on. It is helpful to have students fill in portions of the report as they read the book. This helps with explicit details and spelling. It also promotes pausing and thinking about what they are reading. Provide support to those children in your room who will need it.
I hope your students enjoy being reading detectives.
