Are you looking to introduce your elementary school kids to producing book reports? This book report bundle for homeschool would be a great place to start. The bundle will work well with lower to upper elementary level students and will start them to explore the need for book reports and how they help them to understand a book and its context.
I remember doing one book report in public school and guess what? I never even read the book. It was on Paul Revere and I honestly, don’t know how I even got a passing grade without reading the book. In a public school classroom, there about 20 students to one teacher. Teachers are spread thin and inevitably do what they can to ensure kids know as much as possible, but they have no choice but to move on – whether the kids improve or not.
In homeschool, we don’t have to let that happen to our kids. We can take the time to make sure our kids are in fact reading and “getting” what we teach. That is why I love the idea of this bundle. Each page disassembles a part of the book that is beneficial for the kids to learn and get in the habit of paying attention to.
The book report bundle for homeschool includes the following forms:
- pace to record book information (title, author, etc)
- some personal information (name, age, date)
- story setting
- character info
- a brief summary
- thoughts about the book
- a book rating
