Rocket Book Report Project is provided below.








blue bullet point Rocket Book Report Project: Your students will blast off with reading with this rocket shaped book report project!

blue bullet point This Rocket Reading Response Set will provide you with all of the teaching resources that you need for your students to write about the key story elements of their books.

blue bullet point Traditionally, requiring students to write about the story elements of a book is a task that most students find quite boring. By using these uniquely shaped rocket graphic organizers, your students will take off with enthusiasm to complete these writing tasks that use rocket related vocabulary.

Rocket Book Report Project Bulletin Board Display

blue bullet point This uniquely shaped book report project contains five worksheet templates that assemble into a rocket. The finished rocket project measures 12 inches in width and 27 inches in height.

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

blue bullet point There are 14 worksheet and template pages in this set, as well as a 5 page color bulletin board display banner. In this set there are 4 smaller rockets with reading slogans on them and 18 planet clip art templates to add as accent pieces to your bulletin board 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.



Rocket Book Report Project
What's Included?

blue bullet point This set includes assembly directions on how to prepare and assemble this book report project. Below is a sample of this directions page.

Directions for making rocket book report projects



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.

blue bullet point 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 Rocket Book Report Project grading rubric:

Rocket Book Report Project Reading Grading Rubric




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 reports 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 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 rocket templates.

blue bullet point This Rocket Book Report Set contains writing topics worded with rocket vocabulary. The 4 writing sections of this book report include:

  • The beginning of this book BLASTS OFF when...
  • The plot began to really TAKE OFF when...
  • I was ROCKETED at the end of the book when...
  • This book was a BLAST to read because...
  • Students write the author, genre, their name, and date in the wings of the rocket.

Rocket Book Report Project Writing Worksheets



blue bullet point This set includes 5 templates that assemble into the shape of a rocket. Inside the top section of the rocket, students draw and color a picture of their favorite part of the book.

blue bullet point Below are examples of these five 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 rocket 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 rocket templates of this project for you to use.

blue bullet point Finally, I know that it takes teachers a lot of valuable 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 displays of these Rocket Book Reports.

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 Rocket Book Report Project includes 16 clip art images related to space for you to use as accent pieces on your rocket bulletin board display.

Space, Planets, and Rocket Accent Pieces and Clip Art For Space Bulletin Board Displays




blue bullet point EXTRA GOODIES: I have designed four (one page) rocket posters that you can cut out that contain slogans to promote reading.

blue bullet point Below you will see these 4 rocket bulletin board accent pieces that are included as EXTRA GOODIES in this book report set. The 4 rocket reading posters say:

  • Blast Off With Reading!
  • It's a Blast To Read Books!
  • Aim For the Stars! Read a Book Today!
  • Take Off to New Heights When You Read a Book!

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 rocket bulletin board display.

Rocket Book Report Projects and Templates Slogans to Promote Reading


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

blue bullet point These rocket 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 the main elements of their books in a challenging and engaging way. In addition, this book report set includes rocket themed accent pieces to help you in decorating your bulletin board display.

blue bullet point This book report project requires students to use their sequencing skills of telling about the beginning, middle, and end of the book in a unique way that they will not find boring like traditional reading response worksheets.

I hope that your students will blast off with enthusiasm as they complete this book report!

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!

Name: Mary (Grade 4)
From: New York, U.S.A.

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!
