    Hi Emmy!
    I also do a book report a month but rather than having them do a written report each month, they have to chose from one of four projects to do. Below I have attached what I will give to my 4/5 grade students for the 1st semester. I hope that is helps.

    Dear Students,
    Just as in years past, you will be doing 4 book projects each semester. The dates that these projects will be do this fall are: Sept. 21, Oct 19, Nov 16, and Dec. 15. Below you will find 4 different options for you to chose from. You will read your book for 30 minutes each night (once the book has been approved by me) for one month. At the end of that month you will complete one of the projects below and present them to the class on each of the following dates. You can only use each project idea one time. Therefore by the end of the 1st semester you will have done each of the ideas below. The order in which you do them will be up to you. They are very fun and creative ways to present a book. I am looking forward to your presentationsļ

    1.Scrap Book: Think about all the kinds of memories you would put into a scrapbook if you had one then create a scrapbook for one of the characters in your book. Cut out pictures from magazines or draw the pictures that would help create memories for that character. Your scrapbook needs to be at least 3 pages and with it you need to have a one page paper explaining why you chose these items for your character¡¦s scrapbook.

    2.Find five photos or magazine pictures that would be significant to your stories main character. Put them on a poster and next to the pictures write an explanation of what these pictures would be significant to the main character.

    3.Sell It! You will pretend to be a publicist for the book that you just read. You will write and then deliver a 60-second speech that will persuade other students that they should read the book. Make sure you spend some time on this. You need to be prepared and know how you are going to persuade your audience to read this book. You will turn in the written speech.

    4.Glossary and Word Search. You will create a glossary of twenty words that are specific to the book's tone, setting, or characters. You will define each word and write a sentence FROM THE BOOK that includes that word. Then you will create a word search puzzle that includes the glossary words.

    Along with these projects, you will be asked to tell the class what your book was about and I will ask you up to five specific questions about your book. Make sure you are reading and that you come prepared for these presentations!!
