    book reports

    We do the previous reports and a few others - my kids really love book reports!
    We do
    - mysterious box: a bit like your 'pringle' book report. 'Reader' choose 5 objects from the book; put them in box; write riddles. Other students must guess what the object is. Reader will explain what the object is doing in the book...
    - photo album: kids must find pictures or photos for different parts of the story, characters.. and write a caption. They cut 'frames' out of gift wrap paper or construction paper. Sometimes they 'act' the book and ask a parent to take pictures
    - puppets are another favorite: made out of paper bag or a cone of paper. Give me another grade for oral presentation!
    - 'Lego' book reports are another favorite: they make a scene of the book out of Legos...
    - skit: have 2 kids read the same book then prepare a short skit ( can be just a dialogue from the book) and act it out.
    - objects: with shoe boxes,cardboard, papier mache,construction paper etc.. they build an objet from the book ( I had a wonderful papier mache birthday cake the other day). They write info on side or inside.
    I write titles of the books on colored paper strips and we loop them across the room...
    Hope this helps
