    book report ideas

    Fifth Grade magnet class. I am just not a book report person. After we read a chapter book, I sometimes divide my readers into groups of 4 or 5. I provide them with a half sheet of poster board and some tag board to plan on. Their assignment is to use events, characters, problems & settings from the story to design a board game. I also have some old game pieces, dice & spinners they can use. Or they can create their own. This usually takes 4-5 class periods. At the end of the planning phase is a game day (1 hour or so) groups set up their game. We all play each game for 20 minutes or so and then each group grades the others on a set of criteria. I average the grades and that is their test grade for the book.
    They Love it!
