Book Report Information

Information on... Book Reports!

Students will be completing 4 book reports this year. Please look in your child's folder for this letter for more details. Basically, children will read a chapter book at home, then complete a one-page paper about the book that they will get from me. Finally, they will create a simple art project at home about the story in general or one aspect of the story. Some ideas are: a mobile, a poster, a shoebox diorama, a brochure, a story cube, a book jacket... but the sky is the limit in terms of acceptable creativity! 

We will complete the first book report paper in class but students need to do the art project at home after they read their book.  Tentative due dates are:
