Kite Book Report




Here’s a creative way to present a book report. I’ve made them with many classes as a classroom teacher but they could easily be done while relief teaching as a once off literacy lesson.

-Cut an A4 piece of paper into a square.
-Fold the corners down into the centre.
– Label the sections ‘Characters, Setting, Problem, Resolution’ & decorate.
– Lift up each section & fill out (it’s best for students to do a draft copy on lined paper or in their writing books first). Junior grades could draw instead of write.
– On the inner centre section create an alternate front cover for the book. This needs to include the book title & author.
– Attach streamers or strips of crepe paper to one corner.

These make a colourful display on a classroom wall!
