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 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!
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.
