Raking in Good Books is a fun print-and-go project booklet can be used to motivate students to read and deepen their comprehension and re-telling skills.
Encourage your students to FALL in love with books with this fun and engaging resource that includes everything you need to assign, complete, and assess a project that can be used with ANY BOOK! (picture book or chapter book)
The project asks your students to create a leaf booklet that assesses their reading comprehension and understanding of basic story elements. The pages include:
3. Main Characters
4. Retelling: Beginning
5. Retelling: Middle
6. Retelling: End
7. My Favorite Part
10. Something New I Learned
11. My Rating of the Book (1-5 stars) and Why
The packet also includes a rubric for the teacher to use when grading the project.
Note: There are two versions of the leaf booklet – half-size (pages 3-9) and full-page (pages 9-22).
This would make an excellent bulletin board display! Also, it can be a wonderful way for the students to get book recommendations from their classmates.
This is in a series of monthly book report templates.
