Caterpillar Book Report Project #1:
What's Included?

blue bullet point Caterpillar Book Report Project #1: This book report focuses on colorful writing. First, students have to find examples of the author using colorful verbs and adjectives in their book. Then, they have to write a colorful description of the main character and explain why the plot of this book is colorful and interesting.

blue bullet point This Caterpillar Book Report Project will provide you with all of the teaching resources that you need for your students to review finding and using descriptive verbs and adjectives, and then using colorful verbs and adjectives in their own writing to describe the main character and plot of their book.

blue bullet point Traditionally, requiring students to find examples of verbs and adjectives in a book is a task that most students find quite boring. Before students start this task, they are given example sentences of descriptive verbs and adjectives on their first draft worksheets.

blue bullet point These first draft worksheets also contain examples from the book The Twits by Roald Dahl and example sentences of how Roald Dahl uses descriptive verbs and adjectives in his writing. By using this caterpillar book report project that emphasizes colorful writing, your students will want to put their feet in motion and march into these grammar and writing activities.

blue bullet point This caterpillar book report project contains five worksheet templates that assemble into a caterpillar. The finished caterpillar project measures 30 inches in width and 9 inches in height.

blue bullet point These finished caterpillar book report projects will make a colorful classroom 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.

blue bullet point There are 17 worksheet and template pages in this set, as well as a 5 page color bulletin board display banner. There are 8 pages of caterpillar accent pieces for you to use to help you decorate your caterpillar 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 includes assembly directions on how to prepare and assemble this project. Below is a sample of the assembly directions page.

Caterpillar Book Report Project Directions

Grading Rubric:

blue bullet point This set includes a book report grading rubric.

blue bullet point I believe that it is important for students to evaluate their own work, so my grading rubric contains both a student assessment and a teacher assessment component. When the students grade their work, they color in the faces. When the teacher grades the work, the teacher circles the small numbers in each box beside the faces. I often find that my students are harsher on themselves than I am, and that the grade that I give them is higher than they have scored themselves.

blue bullet point Since this project uses the word color in it numerous times, there is an additional set of each resource that contains the UK spelling of colour for the grading rubric, first draft, and final draft templates.

blue bullet point Below is an example of my Caterpillar Book Report grading rubric:

Caterpillar Book Report Project Grading Rubric

First Draft Worksheets:

blue bullet point 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 caterpillar book report projects by writing on their final draft templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets. Then, they edit and revise their work on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

blue bullet point This Caterpillar Book Report Project is divided into four writing sections:

  • Section 1 - Colorful Verbs: Students find examples of sentences that contain colorful verbs in them.
  • Section 2 - Colorful Adjectives: Students find examples of sentences that contain colorful adjectives in them.
  • Section 3 - Colorful Character: Students write a description for the main character and try to use colorful adjectives and verbs in their writing.
  • Section 4 - Colorful Plot: Students explain why the plot of this book is colorful (interesting) and why they recommend that other students read this book.
  • Caterpillar Head and Feet: Title of book, author, genre, student name, and date.

blue bullet point This set contains five worksheets for students to write their first drafts on, the first four worksheets are shown below. On my first draft worksheets, I have designed the writing line spaces to match the spaces allotted on the final draft caterpillar templates.

blue bullet point These first draft worksheets contain example sentences using colorful verbs and adjectives for the students to read before they try to find examples of these parts of speech in their own book. There are also examples from the book The Twits by Roald Dahl so that students can read examples from a particular book.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the first draft writing worksheets for this book report set. 4 of the 5 worksheets are shown below.

Black and White Caterpillar Templates:

blue bullet point Below are examples of these five templates:

Color Caterpillar Templates:

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 their final draft book report projects should look like. I always assemble the caterpillar book report project myself beforehand and display it at the front of my classroom for my students to see.

blue bullet point My students enjoy seeing my caterpillar project first. They also enjoy hearing about the book that I chose to do my book report on, and this gives me a great chance to promote 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 your students, I have included color caterpillar templates of this project for you to use.

Free 5 Page Bulletin Board Display Banner:

blue bullet point Finally, I know that it takes teachers a lot of time to assemble their bulletin board displays. Many teachers spend their valuable time cutting out large display letters or making a banner on their own at home on their computer.

blue bullet point This time is valuable and better spent on developing your classroom curriculum and grading papers, so I have designed a matching 5 page display banner for your bulletin board.

blue bullet point If you have access to a laminating machine, you can laminate your banner so that it is durable and you can use it year after year for bulletin board display of these Caterpillar Book Report Projects.

blue bullet point The words inside the caterpillar's body on this banner say: "Our Class Loves To Read!"

blue bullet point These caterpillar graphic organizers are a unique and fun way to get your students excited about completing a writing assignment about the books that they have read.

blue bullet point The writing responses that are required of your students will have them searching for examples of descriptive verbs and adjectives in their book. Then, students use colorful verbs and adjectives in their own written responses. In addition, this caterpillar book report set includes a large caterpillar bulletin board accent piece to help you in decorating your bulletin board for this colorful theme.

Matching Butterfly
Book Report Projects!

Butterfly Bulletin Board Display Banner

While I was creating these two caterpillar projects,
I designed two matching butterfly book reports.

Butterfly Book Reports Bulletin Board Display

The writing spaces in the butterfly's body match the writing spaces in the caterpillar's body for both book report sets. The first draft worksheets and grading rubrics are exactly the same except for the graphics on them.

Butterfly Book Report Templates and Worksheets

These caterpillar and butterfly projects are identical
to each other in all of the written responses. The only difference
is the shape of the butterfly and caterpillar templates.

These identical projects will look great displayed together!


blue bullet point I give my girl students the butterfly templates to write their book report projects on and my boy students the caterpillar templates.

blue bullet point By having my students write in two different book report templates, I can then create a dynamic bulletin board display full of both caterpillar and butterfly book report projects.

blue bullet point These caterpillar and butterfly book report projects can be used separately, I am just making a suggestion that worked well for me, and I liked the idea of having my girl students work on butterfly shaped templates and my boy students working on caterpillar templates.

Below you will find more information about these
two matching butterfly book report projects.
