Are you looking for a great alternative to writing lengthy book reports that is engaging, fun, and perfect for kiddos in first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grade? Check out this condensed book report idea where students can write a simplified book review! Included are templates, photographs and easy-to-follow directions that are a cinch for teachers to implement and great for students to complete after reading their favorite books!
There are three tabs in each booklet: about, review, and favorites. Kiddos can use words and/or pictures to help them complete the booklet.
This activity can really be used from first grade (with modeling and support), all the way up through middle school. It’s simple, yet efficient!
While it would work great ANY time of year, this resource would be a huge asset to use during the week of Read Across America, to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, Celebration of Learning nights, open house, and more! It’s always a good time to celebrate reading and books!
