Paper Bag Book Report due 10/23

First Quarter Narrative Book Report

Our first book report will be a fiction book report.  Students should start choosing a fiction chapter book at their reading level that has NOT been turned into a movie.  They should also begin reading it.  The book report will be assigned the day that the Create a Country project is due, and students will have three weeks to complete it.

This quarter students will complete the paper bag book report. They will choose a narrative chapter book and complete the activities from the rubric. They have to choose their book and get it approved by Mrs. Church no later than FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2012. Once they have done this, it is time to move on to reading and working on the book report.
