Free Book Reports
We’ve been using my in depth book report I shared last year. But I decided we need some shorter to the point book reports that my kids could easily use more often as they were shorter and to the point. I find book reports do such a good job of helping them retain what they read, process what they read, and practice writing.
This book report form is great for Kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, and grade 6 students.
Simple book report template
I’ve found that students can be intimidated by both a blank sheet of paper when asked to write a summary and by mult-page book report forms. The idea behind this printable book report template is that it is simple. THere is only 1 page with just the bare necessities to not overhwhelm students and have them dread fillign out the book report or grow to dislike reading1
