A very DETAILED description about this
Movie Camera Book Report Project is provided below.




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.

Movie Camera Book Report Set:
What's Included?

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.

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 pointBelow is an example of my movie camera book report grading rubric:

Movie Camera Book Report Projects Templates Grading Rubric



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.

blue bullet point First Draft Worksheet #2: Students write the adaptations that they would make to the book as the director of their movie. Students write this section in the left movie template, in the larger writing space.

blue bullet point First Draft Worksheet #3: Students write about their movie's film location, special effects, and stunts. Students write this section in the right movie template, in the larger writing space.

blue bullet pointFirst Draft Worksheet #5: Students write their movie's props and costumes. Students write these two sections in the right movie template, in the smaller writing boxes.

blue bullet point This set includes 5 worksheets with templates that assemble into the shape of a movie camera. The finished movie camera book report project measures 15 inches in height and 17 inches in width.

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.

Movie Camera Book Report Student 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 pointMy 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 pointTo 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.

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.

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 I have designed 8 (one page) director's boards that contain words related to this movie camera book report project:

  • Movie Camera Book Reports
  • We are Creative Directors!
  • Meet the Stars of Our Movies!
  • Film Location
  • Supporting Cast
  • Props and Costumes
  • Special Effects
  • Dangerous Stunts

blue bullet pointI hope that these EXTRA GOODIES that are included in this movie camera book report set help save you time in decorating your bulletin board display.

blue bullet point These movie related 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 make them think and write about their books in a challenging and engaging way. In addition, this book report set includes movie themed accent pieces to help you in decorating your bulletin board display.

blue bullet point I hope that your students will enjoy sitting in the director's chair and putting on their thinking caps as they create movies based on their books.

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!

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!
