Cell Phone Book Report Projects:
What's Included?


blue bullet point Cell Phone Book Report Project: Your students will be enthusiastic to write text messages about the books that they have read with these fun cell phone templates.

blue bullet point These cell phone shaped graphic organizers will provide you with all of the teaching resources that you need for your students to write about the conflict and resolution of the story, as well as their favorite parts of their books.

blue bullet point When this fun book report project is completed, it is a two sided display that is perfect for hanging from the ceiling or displaying on a window so that both sides of the cell phone can be seen.

blue bullet point Below is a photograph of a finished cell phone book report project hanging from the ceiling of my classroom.

blue bullet pointIf you do not want to hang your students' cell phone book report projects from the ceiling, they also make a dynamic flat bulletin board display. Below is an example of a cell phone book report bulletin board display in my classroom.

blue bullet point Traditionally, requiring students to write about the conflict and resolution of a book is a task that most students find quite boring. By using this uniquely shaped Cell Phone Book Report, your students will be eager to complete this assignment!

blue bullet point Note: For this assignment, I allow my students to write their responses as they would if they were text messaging their friends. Children these days have an abundance of abbreviations and symbols that they use when they write text messages to their friends. Normally I do not allow my students use U(you), &(and), and other abbreviations (:o) and LOL) in their writing, but for this activity, I felt that it was appropriate.

blue bullet point My students really enjoyed being able to write their text messages using the abbreviations and symbols that they commonly use in this form of communication.

blue bullet point For some of the abbreviations that my students used, I had to have them "translate" them for me, as I am not up to date on all of the codes and symbols that young people are using in text messages these days!

blue bullet pointThis uniquely shaped book report project contains four worksheet templates that assemble into a 2 sided cell phone. The finished cell phone project measures 6 inches in width and 17 inches in height.

blue bullet pointThese finished book reports make a unique 2 sided classroom display of your students' work.

blue bullet pointEverything that you need to complete these Cell Phone Book Report Projects is included in this set. All that you will need is scissors, glue, and coloring pencils.

blue bullet pointThere are 13 worksheet and template pages in this set, as well as a 5 page color bulletin board display banner.

blue bullet pointThere are also two cell phone displays with title slogans that you can use as a centerpiece for your classroom 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 this directions page.

Book Report Projects Assembly Directions Cell Phone

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 Below is an example of my Cell Phone Book Report grading rubric:

Cell Phone Book Report Projects 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 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 Cell Phone Book Report Set contains three writing templates and one template for students to draw a picture.

  • Book Information: Title, Author, and Genre
  • Incoming Text Message: Conflict of the Story (Pretend that the main character in the book has just sent you a text message telling you about the conflict that he or she is facing in the story.)
  • Incoming Photograph: Students draw a picture from the story.
  • ________ (main character's name) just called to tell me: Resolution of the Story (Pretend that the main character of the book just called to tell you how the problem in the book was resolved.)
  • Calling a Friend: Pretend that you are calling a friend to recommend that he or she should read this book. Describe your favorite part of the story and why you are recommending that your friend should read this book.

blue bullet point Due to spelling differences in English (words like color/colour and favorite/favourite), there are two sets of downloads for these worksheets, as well as the final draft templates. You can select the spelling that is used in the country that you are from.

blue bullet point This set contains three 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 cell phone templates.

blue bullet point Below is a small visual example of the three first draft worksheets.


Cell Phone Book Report Project First Draft Writing Worksheets

Black and White Cell Phone Templates:

blue bullet point This set includes 4 templates that assemble into the shape of a 2 sided cell phone. There is an area on the front of the phone for students to draw and color a picture of their favorite part of the book.

blue bullet point Below are examples of these 4 cell phone templates.

Color Cell Phone Templates:

blue bullet point When I am first introducing my students to a new project, I believe that it is important for them to have a visual picture of what their final draft should look like. I always assemble the project myself beforehand and complete it.

blue bullet point My students enjoy seeing my cell phone project first (especially because I am horrible at drawing!). 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 cell phone 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. 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 your bulletin board display of these Cell Phone Book Report Projects.

Free Bulletin Board Display Accent Pieces:

blue bullet point EXTRA GOODIES: For some of my book report projects, I am able to think of, and create, additional accent pieces to help you in decorating your bulletin board displays.

blue bullet point This Cell Phone Book Report Project includes two cell phone classroom decorations that are the same size as the students' templates.

blue bullet point I hope that these two EXTRA GOODIES that are included in this book report set help save you time in decorating your cell phone classroom display area.

blue bullet point You will be able to design a colorful and dynamic bulletin board display using your students' finished cell phone book report projects.

blue bullet point These cell phone graphic organizers are a creative 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 make them think and write about the conflict and resolution of their books in a challenging and engaging way. In addition, this book report set includes cell phone accent pieces to help you in decorating your classroom display area.

blue bullet point This book report set is unique because it is a 2 sided project and your students will enjoy the fun task of writing text messages related to the plot of their books.
