    1st Grade Book Reports

    Reading and talking about books is the main priority in 1st grade. Students will complete a book report twice each month for an at-home project. Each month we will focus on a different skill that we have mastered in class. The book report can be as basic as answering the questions on the provided paper or as elaborate as a poster board (small). Do what works best for you and your child. Parents, PLEASE DO NOT do it or write it for your child, be there to discuss it, and guide them, but let them complete it.

    Students should be reading books for their book reports at their reading level. As you read other books each day talk about these things throughout the year.

    At the beginning of each month, the book report instructions, rubric, and due dates will be assigned in Google Classroom. Please review the rubric for guidance.
