As your 1st grader is reading more and more complex books, story lines, and rich vocabulary it is important to ensure they are understanding what they are reading!
I created this book report for my 1st grader to help him articulate himself, practice writing and formulating sentences, and to ensure he had good reading comprehension. This is an important skill for homeschool K12 kids just as much as their public school counterparts.
For the beginning of the 1st grade year you can just use the 1st page. As their writing and thinking skills expand add page 2 and ultimately page 1-4. This will help kids really understand the who/what/when/where/why and how as well as summarizing the plot.
This book report form will also work for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders as well.
And don't miss my 1st grade book recommendations.
