Movie Camera Book Report Projects:
What's Included?

Movie Camera Book Report Projects: Your students will be anxious to be directors and shout "ACTION!" as they pretend that they are directors for a film version of the books that they have read.

This movie camera shaped reading response project will provide you with all of the teaching resources that you need for your students to write about adaptations that they have to make to their books in order to make a film version of the novel. They have to think about the plot of their book when they write about their movie's film location, special effects, stunts, props, costumes, lead actor or actress, and the supporting cast.



blue bullet point Traditionally, requiring students to write about the main character and the plot of a book is a task most students find quite boring.

By using this uniquely shaped movie camera book report that contains graphic organizers that are worded in movie terminology, your students will be enthusiastic and engaged as they pretend that they are directors and have to create movies based on the books that they read.

(Examples: color/colour and favorite/favourite)

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.

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 movie camera book report 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.

blue bullet point 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 On the first draft worksheets, there are examples from the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory that will give students an example of what they should write about for each section for this movie camera book report.

blue bullet point This movie camera book report set is divided into 8 writing sections:

  • Adaptations That I Would Make to the Book as the Director: movie camera left main template
  • Film Location, Special Effects, and Stunts: movie camera right main template
  • Film Title and Lead Actor/Actress: movie camera left main template small box #1
  • Supporting Cast: movie camera left main template small box #2
  • Props: movie camera right main template small box #1
  • Costumes: movie camera right main template small box #2
  • Camera Stand: Favorite Part of the Book and Favorite Part of the Movie that the student created.
  • Camera Stand: Title of Book, Author, Genre, and Student Name


blue bullet point This set contains five 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 movie camera templates.

blue bullet point Normally to save space and time (graphics opening on each web page), I show a small graphical image of the first draft worksheets in my book report sets. I thought that it would help you to have large images of these first draft worksheets to view, as this would give you an idea of the directions and the examples that are provided on these worksheets to help guide your students in writing their first draft responses.

blue bullet point First Draft Worksheet #1: Students write the title, author and genre of the book. Then, they write their favorite part of the book and their favorite part of their movie. This title information and the two short written responses are written in the movie camera stand template.

Black and White Movie Camera Templates:

blue bullet point Below are the two main writing templates that are glued together to form the large body of the movie camera.

blue bullet point Below are the film reels and camera lens templates. Students draw a picture about their movie inside the camera lens. Students can color the film reels, and I have also had some students draw small pictures inside each section of the film reels.

Color Movie Camera 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 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 video camera 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 movie camera 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 movie camera 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.

  • Movie Camera Book Reports
