Use these Fiction and Non-fiction Book Reports to help students construct book reports to meet Common Core ELA fourth grade standards (could be used in other grades as well).
The standards include RL.4.2, RL.4.3, RL.4.4, RI.4.2, RI.4.4.
These are simple enough for all students, including those in special education or english language learners. The expectation of the teacher determines the complexity. Students can use these over and over and show improvement over time.
