As a relief teacher you probably won’t always have access to a photocopier. Here is a way for students to create a book report from a piece of white A4 paper.
Depending on the age of the students, either you can fold the paper into 3 sections or you can show them how to do it.

On the front cover students can design a new cover for the book they are reviewing. It needs to include the title, author and an illustration.

On the inside cover students can list and draw the characters. They can also either describe or draw the setting.

On the back cover they can give the book a rating. They can also give reasons for their rating. I hand out sticker stars (the type you get really cheaply at the grocery store or discount stores) for the students to use for their rating. They love using them!

On the inside of the pamphlet, have the students write & draw the beginning, middle and end of the story.

These can be kept near the class library for students to read, to help them choose their next book!
If you have limited time, you can simply have the students fold the page into 3 sections and just do the ‘beginning, middle & end’ of the story.

  1. So simple yet brilliant! I’ve come to realize that sometimes I miss the obvious (easiest) because I make things complicated. Thank you for sharing a wonderful idea! I plan to do this with my students in the fall. Thank you!
