They picked their favorite book used a piece of cardstock folded to look like a book with a binding. They illustrated the cover, and wrote a brief summary on the back. We read some summaries on the back of some of the books in our class library and the students noticed that many of them ended in questions. We discussed how the questions left you wanting to read more to find out what happens in the book. add their photo & DONE! by susan.c.newman.94

A better way to deal with disruptive students in middle and high school. Print these out on quarter- or half- sheets and hand them to students who are off-task or disruptive. Or laminate a few and have dry- or wet-erase markers on hand. A behavior slip forces the student to think about their actions and how they can prevent them in the future, without taking up extra class time for discipline! Students are less likely to act up if they know they'll have to fill one of these out every time. by mathteacher1

Add a little fun to your current novel or short story unit by turning your students into police officers. This official-looking offense/incident report requires students to collect details from their reading and use real-world writing skills to efficiently report the facts (just the facts, ma’am) of the scene you just read. Works with ANY piece of literature that has a crime or incident scene worthy of police attention. Works for 5th through 12th grade students. Check it out! by bernadette

I had such a great response to my Vocabulary Detective contests, I decided to create Phonics Detectives Contest! Run weekly phonics contests! Students fill in the long vowel coupons as they read books in class. They put them in the Phonics Detective Jar and wait eagerly for the drawing at the end of the week. Fun! by hattie

This hands on approach to a book report will turn any kid into a bookworm. Templates and foldables are used to identify characters, summarize the beginning, middle, and end of the story (shhhh....the end is confidential!), rate the book on a 4 star basis, report on a favorite part, work with difficult vocabulary words, capture the theme, setting, and conflict....and so much more!!! ** Each template is outlined in black ink for easy and economical printing....students do the coloring! ** by graciela

"The students are asked to choose a simple shape and create a pattern of that shape to trace onto the paper. The students are told to overlap the shapes to create interesting negative shapes. Then they erase the lines where the shapes overlap.  After they complete their composition, they add color to the background with colored pencils." by shmessa
