22 Creative Ways Kids Can Respond to Books
From mint tins to cereal boxes to T-shirts.
We Are Teachers: 2.25.2020 by Elizabeth Mulvahill

Reading about other people and perspectives helps kids learn beyond their own experiences. Students don’t need to dive deeply into every single book they read, but occasionally showing them how to dive in can help them view reading in different ways. Digging into characters (or settings or themes) from the books they read can really help them learn how to look beyond the prose. Here are 22 creative book report ideas designed to make reading more meaningful:

Fictional Yearbook Entries
Ask your students to create a yearbook based on the characters and setting in the book. What do they look like?

Current Events Comparison
Have students locate 3-5 current event articles a character in their book might be interested in.

Book Alphabet
Choose 15-20 alphabet books to help give your students examples of how they work around themes. Then ask your students to create their own Book Alphabet based on the book they read.

Reading Lists for Characters
Ask your students to think about a character in their book. What kinds of books might that character like to read?

Create a PSA
If a student has read a book about a cause that affects people, animals, or the environment, teach them about Public Service Announcements.

Be a Character Therapist
Therapists work to uncover their clients’ fears based on their words and actions.  READ MORE  ➤➤
