Moving Ahead with Book Reports Grades 3-4 Aligned to Common Core
- Author : Summers, Eleanor M.
Book reports allow the young reader to share their thoughts about the stories they have heard or have read themselves. As well, students need the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the materials.
As children’s literacy skills become more developed, we need to provide meaningful
activities that will promote successful and enjoyable reading experiences. These activities should address both oral and written aspects of performance.
Reading and understanding the text is the initial step for these activities. With teacher
guidance and modeling, students can apply their understanding to produce their own
interpretation of what they have read.
This resource contains six sections:
- Vocabulary Development,
- Identifying Important Information,
