What's Included?

Radio Book Report Project: Your students will enjoy pretending that they are radio disc jockeys with this book report project.

As a DJ, students have to write a radio news update and song lyrics on their radio shaped graphic organizers.

This radio reading response project will provide you with all of the teaching resources that you need for your students to pretend that they are radio disc jockeys while they write about the key elements of their books.

Examples of Fun Radio Book Report Projects and Templates For Elementary School Students

Traditionally, requiring students to write about the most important part of a book is a task that most students find quite boring.

By using these uniquely shaped radio graphic organizers, your students will be engaged in writing their news summary and singing along as they write lyrics to their own songs.

This uniquely shaped book report project contains 6 worksheet templates that assemble into a radio flip book.

Students draw pictures on the radio's speakers, and these speakers flip open to reveal the two main writing sections of this book report. The finished radio project measures 21 x 8 inches.

These finished book report projects will make a brilliant classroom bulletin board display of your students' work. Everything that you need to complete these Radio Book Report Projects is included in this set of teaching resources. All that you will need is scissors, glue, tape, and coloring pencils.

There are 16 worksheets and template pages in this set, as well as a 5 page color bulletin board display banner and a grading rubric. There are 6 DJ microphones and 6 CDs with slogans on them to add as accent pieces to your bulletin board display.

Note:  Due to spelling differences in English (Examples: color/colour and favorite/favourite), there are two separate sets of worksheets and templates included in this set of teaching resources.

You can select the version (U.S. or U.K. spelling rules) that contains the spelling that is used in the country where you live. 

The worksheets and templates that are shown on this page use U.S. spelling rules.

Assembling Directions:

This set of teaching resources includes assembling directions on how to prepare and assemble this radio book report project. Below is an example of the assembling directions worksheet.

Grading Rubric:

A book report grading rubric is included in this set of teaching resources.

I believe that it is important for students to evaluate their own work, so my book report rubric contains an assessment section for both students and teachers.

When students evaluate their book report projects, they color in the faces on their grading rubric worksheets.

When a teacher evaluates the projects, the teacher circles the small numbers inside each box on the printable worksheets.

Below is an example of my radio book report grading rubric.

First Draft Worksheets:

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 radio templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets.

Next, my students edit and revise their written work on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

This set of teaching resources contains three first draft worksheets.
2 of the 3 first draft worksheets are shown below.

Radio Book Report Projects:  First Draft Printable Worksheets

On my first draft worksheets, I have designed the writing line spaces
to match the spaces allotted on the final draft radio templates.

This Radio Book Report Set is designed so that the writing responses require the students to pretend that they are a radio disc jockey. The writing sections of this book report include:

  • Title, Author, Genre, Name, and Date
  • DJ's Book Recommendation: Pretend that you are the radio DJ. Write a short recommendation of why the people who are listening to your radio station should read this book.
  • DJ's Song List: Think about the characters and the plot of your book. Create 5 titles for songs that the DJ will play on the radio based on the characters and the plot of your book.
  • DJ's News Update: Think about the most exciting event that happened in this book. Pretend that you are the radio DJ, and write a news story about this event that you can read during the news section of your radio program.
  • Song Lyrics: Read the 5 song titles that you created. Choose your favorite song title and write lyrics for that song.
  • Speaker Illustrations: Draw an illustation on one speaker related to the news update, and on the second speaker draw an illustration related to the song lyrics.

Black and White Radio Templates:

This set includes 6 templates that assemble into the shape of a radio. Inside the speaker circles, students draw and color pictures related to their news update and song lyrics.

This book report project is a flip book,
and the 2 speakers are stapled on top of the 2 writing sections.

When the speakers are lifted up, they reveal the writing sections

Color Radio Templates:

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 a completed project looks like.

I always complete an example of this radio book report project before I introduce this assignment to my students.

Before my students begin writing their first drafts, I show them my finished radio project. This visual example immediately grabs my students' attention and they are excited to start working on this project from the very beginning. I have found that my students are engaged and use their best effort as they go through the steps of the writing process and complete this fun book report project.

My students also enjoy hearing about the book that I chose to do my book report project on. This is also a wonderful opportunity to share a book that I would like to encourage my students to read.

To save you time in coloring your example that you show to your students, I have included color radio templates in this teaching resources set. I display my finished cheeseburger book report at the front of my classroom so that students can refer to it as they are completing their own cheeseburger projects.

Ideas for Book Report Bulletin Board Displays - Radio Projects

I know that it takes teachers a lot of time to design and assemble their classroom bulletin board displays.

Many teachers spend their valuable time cutting out large display letters or making a banner at home on their own computers.

In order to help save you time in assembling a bulletin board display featuring your students' radio book report projects, I have designed a 5 page banner that is included for free in this set of teaching resources.

If you have access to a laminating machine, I recommend that you laminate your banner so that it will be more durable and you can use it again in the future.
