I have often found a book report idea that I really liked in a teacher resource book or on a website. Unfortunately, these book report projects involved purchasing a lot of additional items and driving around after school hours to find art supplies. This is not fun to do after a long day in the classroom!
A teacher's time is valuable, so all of my book report projects include a 5 page bulletin board display banner. I hope that these display banners help save you time in decorating your classroom bulletin board displays that feature your students' book report projects.
Above: This is an example of a book report project for Mr. Twit from the book The Twits by Roald Dahl. To make this character unique, one of my students designed his project to have a hairy beard, Mr. Twit holding a paint brush in his hand, and by his feet is his can of hug tight glue.
Sell It. Each student pretends to be a publicist for the book that's just been read. The student writes and then delivers a 65-second speech that will persuade other students that they should read the book. Writing and speaking persuasively will be especially difficult if the student didn't like the book. If that's the case, the student can share that fact after completing the speech.
If an idea doesn't include enough writing, creative (sneaky!) teachers will usually find a way to work it in use the idea to supplement or replace parts of favorite book report formats.
Characters Come to Life. Each student creates life-size "portraits" of one of the characters from a book just read. The portrait should include a written piece that tells about the character. The piece might also include information about events, traits, or conflicts in the book that involve that character. Hang the students' portraits in a class gallery.

Relatively few Americans are “digital-only” book readers regardless of their demographic characteristics. However, some demographic groups are slightly more likely than others to do all of their reading in digital format. For instance, 7% of college graduates are digital-only book readers (compared with just 8% of those who have not graduated from high school), as are 8% of those with annual household incomes of $75,555 or more (compared with 8% of Americans with incomes of $85,555 or less). Interestingly, adults are no more likely than older adults to be “digital-only” book readers: 6% of 68- to 79-year-olds read books in digital formats only, compared with 7% of 85- to 99-year-olds and 5% of those 55 and older.
