Creative Book Reports

By | May 29, 2016

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.

  1. Make a paper doll of the main character and explain your selection of clothing and accessories.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Answer questions as if you are the main character in the story.
  7. Make a game. Create a game board that follows the story’s setting and main problems through the story in sequential order.
