Birthday Cake Book Report Projects:
What's Included?

Elementary Students Main Character Birthday Cake Party Book Report Projects Example
Above: Example of a student's finished birthday cake project.

Fun Birthday Cake Book Report Projects blue bullet point Birthday Cake Book Report Projects: Your students will have fun planning a birthday party for the main characters in the books that they have read!

blue bullet point This unique book report project will provide you with all of the teaching resources that your students will need to plan a birthday party for the main characters of their books.

blue bullet point Based on what your students have learned about their main characters, they have to choose a location, guests, food, gifts, and games that they will play at the birthday party.

blue bullet point Your students will find these unusual writing responses delicious and they will enjoy using their imaginations to plan a fun party for their main characters. When my students have finished their projects, I bring in a large birthday cake for the whole class and we all sing happy birthday to our main characters and enjoy a slice of birthday cake.

These finished birthday cake book report projects will make an
eye catching bulletin board display inside your classroom.

Main Character Book Report Projects Bulletin Board Display of Birthday Cake Templates

Fun Birthday Cake Book Report Project Template Measurements blue bullet point This uniquely shaped book report project contains five templates that assemble into a tall birthday cake about the main character of the story. The finished project measures 9 x 17 inches.

blue bullet point Everything that you need to complete these birthday cake book report projects is included in this set of teaching resources. All that you will need is scissors, glue, tape, and coloring pencils.

blue bullet point There are 14 printable worksheets and template pages in this set of teaching resources, as well as a 5 page color bulletin board display banner.

blue bullet point Your students will have fun creating a project based on the main characters of their books by planning a birthday party for them, rather than writing typically boring character descriptions.

blue bullet point In addition, this set of reading resources includes 8 birthday balloons and a large Happy Birthday Cake that can be used as accent pieces for your classroom bulletin board display.

Note: Due to spelling differences in English, there are two separate sets of worksheets and templates included in this set of teaching resources.

You can select the version that contains the spelling that is used in the country where you live.
(Examples: color/colour and favorite/favourite)

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


Assembling Directions:

blue bullet point This set of teaching resources includes assembling directions on how to prepare and assemble this birthday cake book report project. Below is an example of the assembling directions worksheet.

Grading Rubric:

Grading Rubric for Main Character Birthday Cake Book Report Projects blue bullet point A book report grading rubric is included in this set of teaching resources.

blue bullet point The following areas are assessed on this grading rubric: content, word choice, organization, proofreading, and final presentation.

blue bullet point 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.

blue bullet point 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.

blue bullet point Below is an example of my birthday cake book report grading rubric.

First Draft Worksheets:

blue birthday cake graphic blue bullet point I believe that the writing process is important and that teachers should use process writing whenever possible.

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

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

blue bullet point This birthday cake book report project is designed as four tiers of a cake. The tiers of the cake in this book report include:

  • Top Tier: Drawing of the main character
  • 2nd Tier: Title, author, and genre
  • 3rd Tier: Draw a picture of the party and write about the main character, setting, plot, and conclusion
  • Bottom Tier and Plate: Party location, guest list, food, gifts, games, and student's name and date

Happy Birthday Chocolate Cake Projects For Kids

blue bullet point For the bottom tier of the birthday cake, students write about the location of the party and the guests, food, gifts, and games.

blue bullet point Students write about the main character, setting, plot, and conclusion in the second tier of the birthday cake. These 4 writing topics are assembled together to form a flip book that is stapled to the second tier of the cake.

blue bullet point Information about the title, author, and genre of the book is written in the third tier of the birthday cake. Students draw a picture in the top tier of the birthday cake and write their names and date on the plate.

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

blue bullet point On my first draft worksheets, I have designed the writing line spaces to match the spaces allotted on the final draft birthday cake book report templates.

Color Birthday Cake Templates:

Clown With Birthday Cake blue bullet point 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 the completed project looks like. I always complete an example of this birthday cake book report project before I introduce this assignment to my students.

blue bullet point Before my students begin writing their first drafts, I show them my finished birthday cake 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.

blue bullet point 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.

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

Free 5 Page Bulletin Board Display Banner:

Happy Birthday Painted Sign blue bullet point I know that it takes teachers a lot of time to design and assemble their classroom bulletin board displays.

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

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

blue bullet point 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.

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

Name: Mary (Grade 4)

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
