Shiloh lesson plans and fun group book report project for Phyllis Reynolds Naylor book. This page contains Shiloh lesson plans and a fun project for your students to complete.

blue bullet point This extra large and unique project is shaped like a dog and the finished projects measures 11 x 20 inches.

blue bullet point Shiloh, written by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, is one of my students' favorite books that we read together as a class. My students love discussing the themes in this book and they identify with Marty Preston and how he wants to help an abused animal.

blue bullet point If you are doing a Newbery Medal study in your classroom, this is a great book choice to use as a whole class novel. Shiloh won the Newbery Medal in 1992.

blue bullet point Watch the short video slide show below to see examples of my students' finished group projects and bulletin board displays of their Shiloh projects.



blue bullet point Phyllis Reynolds Naylor has written two other books in this series called Shiloh Season and Saving Shiloh. I have a few copies of each of these two books in my classroom library so that after we have read Shiloh together as a class, my students can read these two other books for their independent reading program.

blue bullet point Shiloh has also been adapted into a movie and my students have always enjoyed watching the movie after they have read the book and completed their Shiloh projects together.

blue bullet point Below you will find some of the Shiloh Lesson Plans that I have developed over the years as I have used this novel with my students during our Newbery Medal book study.

blue bullet point All of the resources on this page include a second version of each resource that contains UK spelling and punctuation rules.

Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor: Group Reading Projects Bulletin Board Display

Classroom bulletin board display of completed Shiloh group book report projects.

blue bullet point One of my students' favorite projects during the entire school year is this group project for Shiloh written by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. For this project, students work together to write about the story in unique dog shaped templates. My students love completing this project with the members from their group!

blue bullet point For the writing sections, the group members describe Marty Preston, Judd Travers, the main problem that Marty is trying to solve, how Marty solves his problem, and the conclusion of the book. You can see these writing sections in the photograph below.

blue bullet point This set includes step by step directions on how to assemble the 4 pages of templates into a large dog.

blue bullet point Depending on the age of your students, you could assemble these dog projects ahead of time for your students. Each dog takes me around 5 minutes to assemble myself. I have given my fifth grade students the direction sheets, and they were able to assemble their projects themselves.

blue bullet point There is one page of assembling directions, and then there are specific directions provided on the actual dog templates that show students where to cut and glue.

blue bullet point Below you will see an example of the assembling directions page.
