Outside Reading (Book Reports) No Prep for Grade 6
I have come up with some exciting ideas for no prep book reports, that go along with the COMMON CORE standards for Grade 6. Your students will report on a different type of book, in a unique way, for each month of the school year. I just know that they will have as much fun doing them as my class did.
1. Mythology Book, they will make a book jacket.
2. Mystery Novel, they will become a detective.
3. Novel about a handicapped person, they will make a diorama.
4. Historical Fiction, they will become time travelers.
5. Fable, with a partner who has read the same fable, they will perform a skit.
6. Science Fiction, they will wake up after a 100 year sleep, and discuss impressions, etc.
7. Non-Fiction, they will write a postcard.
8. Biography or Auto-Biography, they will be a talk show host, and interview the main character.
9. Novel about a sports character, a musician, artist, actor/actress. They will become a book critic (similar to a movie critic).
