Highs & Lows Book Report September 13, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — jdefors @ 4:51 pm

All ELA students have been assigned the first book report of the school year.  Today, students visited the IMC where Miss Hagensee reviewed IMC policies and procedures.  Additionally, Miss Hagenseee gave a “book talk” on some new fiction selections.  Students were then given time to select any age-appropriate fiction book.

Book Report Informational sheets can be located in the 7th Grade Filing Cabinet.  Here is a brief explanation:

1. After you finish your book report book, think of AT LEAST 5 significant events your main character experienced.

2. Think of a school appropriate picture or image that illustrates this event.

3.  Give each event a rating from 3 to negative 3.  A 3 would be an event that was AWESOME! A -3 would be a horrible event.  You may also use 2, 1, 0, -1, and -2. 

4. On a clean sheet of computer paper, create a timeline of these significant events that shows the “highs and lows” of the story. Add your images near the event they relate to.  Your images may be drawn by hand or something you find in a magazine/online.


This book report is due by October 11!
