Paper Bag Report: K-2 will spice up your readers workshop and have everything you need to send a book report home!
The packet includes 3 varying types of paper bag reports with instruction sheets, rubrics and templates.
Option 1: Students will create a cover for their fiction book and write the characters, setting and summary of their book. The students will select items that represent their book to place inside the bag. There is an option of 3 items or 5 items (2 sets of directions for you to choose from).
Option 2: Students will create a cover for their fiction book and write the main idea and 3 details. Students will also write about the characters and setting of the book.
Option 3: Students will create a cover for their non-fiction book. Students will identify the topic, choose a vocabulary word to define, and write 3 facts about the topic. Students will also fill out a "Is It Non-Fiction?" form to ensure that their chosen book fits the assignment.
Paper bags are not included.
I have used this in my classroom in two ways. First, my students complete a report as a class activity and I only print out the templates from the packet. Secondly, I have sent out the instructions and templates as a take home book report. Students will present their book report to the class. Grading is easy using the rubrics provided!
