Writing a book report is only one way of sharing information about what you read. Here are a few more ideas to start your brainstorming.
- Make a paper doll of the main character and explain your selection of clothing and accessories.
- Create a paper cube. Star with a flat piece of paper and cut it so you have 6 sides (online you’ll find that and other chapes to copy). Show one scene on each side. Add color to make it interesting. Tape the cube (or other shape) closed.
- Pretend to be the author. Answer questions about the setting of the story, the main characters, the problems in the story, and how those problems were resolved.
- Make a poster adverstising the book (Like a Reading Rainbow-style presentatioin at the end of the telecast). Use words and drawng to excite others to read the book.
- Share a cause and effect chart. Write each problem in one column, followed by a second column that shows the effect ithad on the story.
- Answer questions as if you are the main character in the story.
- Make a game. Create a game board that follows the story’s setting and main problems through the story in sequential order.
