Dive Into Reading Book Reports:
What's Included?


blue bullet point Do you want to encourage your students to dive into reading books?

blue bullet point Do you want to create a vibrant ocean themed bulletin board display that promotes reading that was created by your own students?

blue bullet point On this page you will find 12 varieties of fish book report templates so that you can assign different fish templates to your students for this book report project activity.

blue bullet point By using a large variety of these different fish graphic organizers, you will be able to create a Dive Into Reading bulletin board display that contains an abundance of different types of sea life on it that will capture everyone's attention.

blue bullet point These Dive Into Reading Book Reports will provide you with all of the teaching resources that you need for your students to dive into writing a review and a recommendation about the books that they have read.

blue bullet point Traditionally, requiring students to write a book review is a task that most students find quite boring. By using these uniquely shaped fish book report projects, your students will dive into this task with enthusiasm!

Heidi McDonald Teacher Scuba Diving in Cozumel Mexico

blue bullet point I grew up in Florida and I learned how to scuba dive when I was 18. Above is a picture of me diving in Cozumel, Mexico. I have lived in Guam, Hawaii, and Indonesia and while I was in those locations, I had the opportunity to dive in some of the world's most beautiful coral reefs.

blue bullet point I always wanted to create a bulletin board display that would represent the beautiful scenery that I observed living under the ocean. During the summer of 2008, I worked on creating these fish templates and Dive Into Reading Book Reports that represent some of the sea life that I became fascinated with while I was scuba diving.

blue bullet point I tried to include sea life that swims and also sea life that you would find along the sand in these templates, so that the finished effect would be a bulletin board display with sea life swimming in the water and sea life along the sand on the bottom of the ocean.

blue bullet point The angel fish, puffer fish, jelly fish, turtle, butterfly fish, clown fish, and sting ray are sea life that would swim in the ocean. The eel, sea snail, sea snake, and ocean crab would be found along the sand at the bottom of the ocean.

blue bullet point To create this effect, you need to use blue bulletin board paper for your background. Then, on the bottom section of your bulletin board, use brown bulletin board paper to create the sand at the bottom of the ocean. Cut the brown paper so that it has little hills on it, and so that your sand is not flat. If you look at the background of the banner that is provided in these sets, it will give you a good idea of how to design your bulletin board's background of a blue ocean and brown sand.

blue bullet point These uniquely shaped Dive Into Reading Book Reports contain:

  • First draft:
    Students write a short book review and explain why other students would enjoy reading this book. There are 12 different versions of this first draft worksheet, and each first draft has a different fish graphic on it.
  • Grading rubric:
    There are 12 different versions of this grading rubric, and each rubric has a different fish graphic on it.
  • Black and white final draft fish templates:
    12 different fish templates facing both left and right
  • Color final draft fish templates:
    12 different fish templates facing both left and right
  • Matching 5 page bulletin board display banner
  • Large whale and dolphins bulletin board displays
  • Fish bulletin board accent pieces

First Draft Worksheets:

blue bullet point These 12 Dive Into Reading Book Reports each contain a first draft writing response worksheet. If you have used some of my other book report sets, you will notice that the writing section on these book report projects is shorter in length due to the size of the fish templates that I designed.

blue bullet point For these fish shaped book report projects, students write a short summary about their books and why they recommend that other students should read their book. This book report assignment will provide you with a dynamic and colorful ocean themed bulletin board display that will promote and highlight reading in your classroom.

blue bullet point Below are examples of the angel fish and sea turtle first draft worksheets.

Grading Rubric:

blue bullet point Each of these 12 Dive Into Reading Book Reports contain a grading rubric. Below are examples of the angel fish and sea turtle grading rubrics.

Black and White Fish Templates:

blue bullet point Each of these Dive Into Reading Book Reports contains black and white templates of each fish.

blue bullet point The idea of these Dive Into Reading Book Reports is to be able to create an ocean bulletin board display that has a large variety of different ocean fish in it.

blue bullet point For 10 of the 12 fish in this unit, I have created a left and right version of each template so that your bulletin board display will contain fish swimming in both directions.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the angel fish black and white templates.

Angel Fish Dive Into Reading Book Report Projects

Color Fish Templates:

blue bullet point Each of these Dive Into Reading Book Reports has two color versions of each fish for you to print out and use as visual examples for your students. You could also print out the color templates to give to your students, and this makes the finished effect of the bulletin board display very vibrant and colorful.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the angel fish color templates.

Ideal Times of the Year to
Use These Fish Book Report Projects:

blue bullet point These unique Dive Into Reading book reports can be used any time during the school year.

blue bullet point I use this set of resources as my first book report project of the year, and I usually have my students complete this activity during the first week of school.

blue bullet point My students pick a book that they read over the summer or their favorite book that they read last school year to write about. Since the writing response area in this book report set is not very lengthy, it does not take me much time to help my students edit and revise their first drafts.

blue bullet point After my students have finished editing their first drafts, I give them their final draft fish templates. These are easy to cut out and 8 of these fish are one template worksheets, while there are 4 fish that are two templates that are glued together.

blue bullet point During the first week of school, I am able to complete a creative writing assignment with my students that results in a dynamic classroom bulletin board display.

blue bullet point Are you looking for a quick and eye-catching bulletin board display idea to post before Parent Open House or a classroom observation by your principal? Save this resource set to use right before one of these classroom visits and you will be able to quickly walk your students through completing this assignment and posting it as a display in your classroom.

blue bullet point If you teach science and English, perhaps you cover a unit on the Water Cycle or Oceans and these fish book report projects would be ideal to use at the same time.

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!

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!
