This Book Report Freebie is a book report format that I have used for years. It is pretty basic, but seems to be detailed enough to get students thinking about the story. I don’t really like to have students get bogged down with book reports. I would rather them be reading, but sometimes students who are struggling with comprehension just need to slow down a bit and think more about the story. This book report seems to help them do this.
I have included two different formats for this book report. One has lined boxes and the other does not. I originally made it without lines, but one year I felt my particular class needed the lines, so I added them. I’m providing both versions so that you can decide which you like best.
