Book Reports are a great way to get kids excited about reading. They are essential in every grade, but I try to make my book reports fun, creative, and interesting....
so not the traditional book report.
I have created three different templates:
-Template 1: This is a template where there are more handwriting lines for the kiddos who already have some experience in writing a book report. They need to read a chapter book and then write about it.
-Template 2: This is a template for the younger more inexperienced kiddos. There are larger handwriting lines for them to gain new experience in writing a book report.
-Template 3: This is a template for the older kiddos. There are no handwriting lines, but rather solid black lines.
The task cards include:
-Book report completed by
-Identify the problem
-Identify the solution
-Beginning of the book
-Middle of the book
-End of the book
-Draw your favorite part
-Write a summary
-A photograph of the completed book report
-A rubric to help grade the book report
-A direction sheet for the parents/students to go off of
-A "First Grade Book List" for students to select their book from. The book list includes: "Easier books with lots of words," "Intermediate chapter books," and "Advanced chapter books."
