Our Writing a Book Report lesson plan combines multiple skills needed for effective written communication and provide reading and comprehension practice for young students. Writing a book reports allows students to summarize, state opinions, and identify key information in written format from what they’ve read. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to write a book report on an assigned book, using guided questions to figure out what information they need to include. Students are also asked to reiterate the 5 steps to writing a book report learned in this lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will have learned the steps to independently write a book report, including format, summarizing key points, and explaining why they enjoyed the book.
