  • Book Report Rubric

    Here is the rubric I will use to grade monthly book reports. Remember that book reports are due on the last day of each month. You may present this information in many creative ways, but I will not accept essay reports or summaries. Some possible ideas that we came up with as a class are: puppet show, one act play, poem, rap, cooking demo, stop motion video, animation, cartoon strip, map of the novel's setting... the list is endless!
    The book you choose must be a "Just Right" book, or one level above. You need to choose a different way of presenting your book report each month (no repeated projects). Finally, track and read a variety of genres!
