Dog Book Report Project Templates:
Teaching Resources Set



What's Included?

dog book report project small example

This dog book report project contains four worksheets with templates that assemble into a dog. The finished dog project measures 20 inches in height and 12 inches in width.

These finished book report projects will make a dynamic bulletin board display of your students' work. Everything that you need to complete these projects is included in this set. All that you will need is scissors, glue, tape, and coloring pencils.

There are 12 worksheet and template pages in this set, as well as a 5 page color bulletin board display banner. There are 18 pages of dog related accent pieces for you to use to help you decorate your bulletin board display.

Note:  Due to spelling differences in English (Examples: color/colour and favorite/favourite), there are two separate sets of worksheets and templates included in this set of teaching resources.

You can select the version (U.S. or U.K. spelling rules) that contains the spelling that is used in the country where you live. 

The worksheets and templates that are shown on this page use U.S. spelling rules.

Assembling Directions:

This dog book report project includes assembly directions on how to prepare and assemble this project. Below is a sample of the assembly directions page.

Grading Rubric:

A book report grading rubric is included in this set of free teaching resources.

I believe that it is important for students to evaluate their own work, so my book report rubric contains an assessment section for both students and teachers.

When students evaluate their book report projects, they color in the faces on their grading rubric worksheets. When a teacher evaluates the projects, the teacher circles the small numbers inside each box on the printable worksheets.


Below is an example of my dog book report grading rubric.

First Draft Worksheets:

I believe that the writing process is important and that teachers should use process writing whenever possible.

For this reason, my students never begin their book report projects by writing on their final draft dog templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets.

Next, my students edit and revise their written work on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

This dog book report set is divided into
three main writing sections:


  • Main Character: (dog ears) Write a description about the main character.

  • Something Worth Barking About! (Climax) (dog body Part 1): The climax of the story is the point of greatest interest or suspense in the story. It is the turning point in the story where the action reaches its peak. The climax is usually the most exciting part of the story and something worth barking about!

  • A Tail Wagging Event! (Conclusion) (dog body Part 2): The conclusion of the story is when the main character solves the problem. The story usually ends happily and it is a tail wagging event!

  • Dog Bowl: Title of Book and Illustration

  • Dog Paws: Author, Genre, Name, and Date

This set of teaching resources contains two printable worksheets for students to write their first drafts on.

On my first draft worksheets, I have designed the writing line spaces to match the spaces allotted on the final draft dog book report templates.

Below is an example of the first draft writing worksheets for this dog book report project.

Black and White Dog Templates:

This dog book report project contains 4 worksheets with templates that assemble into the shape of a dog. The finished dog book report measures 20 x 12 inches.

Below is the head template where students write a description about the main character in the dog's ears. On the front paws, students write the author, genre, their name, and date.

Color Dog Templates:

When I am first introducing my students to a new book report project, I believe that it is important for them to have a visual example of what a completed project looks like.

I always complete an example of this dog book report project before I introduce this assignment to my students.

Before my students begin writing their first drafts, I show them my finished dog project. This visual example immediately grabs my students' attention and they are excited to start working on this project from the very beginning. I have found that my students are engaged and use their best effort as they go through the steps of the writing process and complete this fun book report project.

My students also enjoy hearing about the book that I chose to do my book report project on. This is also a wonderful opportunity to share a book that I would like to encourage my students to read.

To save you time in coloring your example that you show to your students, I have included color dog templates in this teaching resources set. I display my finished dog book report at the front of my classroom so that students can refer to it as they are completing their own dog projects.

Free 5 Page Bulletin Board Display Banner:

I know that it takes teachers a lot of time to design and assemble their classroom bulletin board displays.

Many teachers spend their valuable time cutting out large display letters or making a banner at home on their own computers.

In order to help save you time in assembling a bulletin board display featuring your students' dog book report projects, I have designed a 5 page banner that is included for free in this set of teaching resources.

If you have access to a laminating machine, I recommend that you laminate your banner so that it will be more durable and you can use it again in the future.
