Also, use your own words - copying words directly from the book is called plagiarism, and is not allowed. A book report is a way to tell others about a book you have read.A good book report should include the book's author, title, characters, setting, and plot, as well as a personal endorsement. I think we will do the character book report for our social studies book, "The Kid Who Ran For President." Name: Margaret (Grade 5) From: Victoria, Australia Dear Heidi, I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching.
Nevertheless, we can all use a little help when it comes to finding out where to start. While you read, write down the information you will need to write your report.
A book report can be simple to accomplish with a little organization. If it is a fiction book, note the book's setting, the main characters, and the problem or situation the characters face and how they come to solve it.
If it is a nonfiction book, note the type of book (such as a biography), the subject and some interesting things the author includes in the book. Which parts did you like, and which parts did you not like?
Jot down some of your opinions about the book you've just read. Do you think anyone else would be interested in reading the book?
A book report might consist of writing paragraphs about each of the elements in the story; writing as if you were interviewing the main character; designing a poster or creating a diorama; making an oral presentation; or a variety of other options.
Whatever style your book report is, be sure to use clear, descriptive language and to include all of the important elements.
Check the report for spelling and grammar mistakes.
Read over it and see if there's anything you should take out or add.
Some teachers assign book reports to be delivered as typical reports, while others ask for book reports to be presented in creative formats like posters, dioramas or classroom presentations.
