When Book Characters Come to Life

Today I want to share one of my all-time favorite book report projects:

Here's how it works: To complete this project, have your students choose a book to read. Then they will write a short summary of the book from the first-person perspective of the main character. Give each student a large piece of butcher paper. The students will draw a picture of the main character and cut out the face so that they can stand behind the paper and speak as if they were that character. They then present their book summaries to the class.

Here's an example:

This print-and-go resource includes everything you need to assign, complete, and assess a fun and engaging project to be completed after reading any book!

I'm Thankful for Books November Book Project

November is the month when students are encouraged to think about what they're thankful for - let's encourage them to be thankful for books!
This fun and engaging resource includes everything you need to assign, complete, and assess a project that can be used with ANY BOOK! (picture book or chapter book)

This resource includes two different sizes of the booklet pages - you can choose which one you'd like to use based on the age of your students and the space you have to display these.

My students always LOVED filling in these monthly book project - and I know yours will too! This gave me an excellent way to put my students' knowledge of story elements to the test - and it made a wonderful bulletin board display, just in time for parent-teacher conferences!

This resource is in a series of monthly themed book projects - check out the others in the series:
