Book Reports

Pizza Box Reports

We are already a full month and a half into our school year, so it is time for our first report.  This is a culminating project to to end ELA Unit 1 - Fudge-A-Mania where we learned about characters and how they react to different events, and how to summarize (it is a loooong book).   I got my pizza boxes from a local restaurant supply store for under $15.  Since I had to buy a package of 50 will be another project with these in the future to use the other 22 boxes!









Students working on their Pizza's.  The first wrote about how their character reacts to different events in their notebook on a circle to have 6 or more examples.  


                  





We then added the "cheese" with some yellow paper.  I made a stencil by cutting a plate to a smaller size so they could all trace the circle and we knew it would fit.  Then they drew the lines across the cheese to match the slices below.  To make sure they didn't cut too far we drew a small circle in the middle as a "stop" line, also the spot that got glue to attach the cheese.

The cheese has the illustrations to match the character reactions below.



This child didn't follow the directions, but here is another option of how to do the cheese :)



The cover has the title of the story and the author.  Inside the cover is their summaries of the completed story.  Some summaries are longer than others so you can see different levels of learning - sorry I will add another picture soon.


 Finally, I put them up in our hallway with 1 push pin in the middle!
