We worked on how to write this in class and then kids wrote their own. The teacher may want to require title, author, and publisher on the front; an internal conflict on the left side; an external conflict on the right side; or a favorite scene on the back, for example. The student that did the report on deer hunting brought in a deer antler!
This can be modified if students are very low functioning--peer tutor or teacher reads book to them. Students, after filling and decorating their bags, present them to the class.
The presentations are so fun! The bags are all so different and so well done! Students present their projects, in detail, to the class - first explaining the outside of their bags and then explaining each of the items inside. This makes for a fun oral presentation which exceeds the traditional book report for both the presenter and the audience.
Read a book, write a summary, decorate a bag with a scene from the book, place five items in the bag that represent something from the book, bring it to school, and present it to the rest of us!
What was their favorite part of the book? The lessons I taught about this included samples from books I had read and mostly I just wanted the kids to know that a summary does NOT tell every little tiny event, but also covers the entire book!
Hint, hint, you should not read a page book. What is the probability I will draw an item that starts with "p"? Inside the bag kids should have five items that show something from the book.
Easy idea, wonderful way to share books, and it beats a regular book report, hands down! Keep reading for samples and more directions for this project!
After selecting and reading a book independently, students will create a paper bag book report using an ordinary paper bag.
Why did they select the items? For example, "Goldilocks and Shopping bag book report Three Bears" might call for a soup spoon, a thermometer, a piece of doll house furniture, an ad for running shoes, etc. Students devise written plans for their bag book reports, detailing five to seven items for the inside as well as creating layouts for the outside of the bag.
The sides of the bag can also be decorated if the kids wanted to do that. Why did the select the book? On the back of the bag is a one page summary of the book. The front of the bag should show an original kid-made scene from the book. Place items in a paper bag to represent parts of a story Grade level: How many items did everyone in the whole class use?
This is optional--more appropriate for younger or lower functioning students. Provide time in class for students to complete their book report projects so they can see others working and have guided practice at fulfilling the promise of their written plans.
Students can assess each other using a teacher-devised scoring rubric for both the bag and the presentation.RUBRIC FOR BOOK IN A BAG BOOK REPORT 3 2 1 Outside of Bag 1. Title, author, picture of main character 2. Illustration of favorite part of the book. Paper Bag Book Report 1.
