This is a fun, flexible, whole-class activity that every student contributes to--and it looks great on display in the classroom! Students choose and read books individually, then each student completes a "segment" of the bookworm.
This product includes: the lesson plan; "Our Class Bookworm" sign; bookworm head; and 10 different circle segments:
1) Name, book, author
2) Draw your favorite part
3) Write your favorite part
4) Moral of the story
5) Characters, setting, favorite part
6) Beginning, middle, end
7) Draw something you learned
8) Write what you learned
9) Write three facts you learned
10) Main topic and details
You decide which type of circle you want to use--all the same, one for fiction and one for nonfiction, or multiple forms depending on each student's reading and writing level. This activity lends itself very easily to differentiated instruction within one grade, multi-age classrooms, homeschooling families, and gifted and talented classrooms.This can be a one-time activity (each child reads one book and fills out one circle), or an ongoing, fun alternative to book reports.
