Coola Boola Resources

Average Rating4.10
(based on 15 reviews)

I love learning! I am too easily excited over creating or finding new resources or ideas for the classroom. I can't wait to see students engaging and enjoying their learning. Throw in a Laminator and I am set!! I am a bit of a planner and I am constantly thinking of new ideas and processes to make things in teaching go a little smoother and improve . I thought it was time to start sharing the ideas whirling round my head. I hope you like the resources I have created and find them useful!

Literacy:  Book Review/ book report

Literacy: Book Review/ book report

(0)
A book report template based on a facebook page. The page is created on the main character of the book and students add a 'status' regarding what happened in different parts of the story as well as the theme/ moral of the story. There are sections for students to add friends(other characters, locations, feelings/ activities and give a recommendation for the book. I use this as part of a book bingo where students must complete a book report to mark off the Bingo card and hopefully means that students can't just use the blurb to write the report and they will actually read the book!! I would appreciate constructive feedback or comments on how you used the resource.
