Star Book Report Projects:
What's Included?

blue bullet point Star Book Report Projects: Your students will aim for the stars as they complete this fun book report set that has star themed writing responses.

blue bullet point These star shaped graphic organizers will provide you with all of the teaching resources that you need for your students to write about the star of their book, their starring role as a new character, a super star scene, and their star rating of the book.

blue bullet point Previously, I have used other star writing templates. I wasn't that keen on them because they were usually small and one page worksheets that didn't contain very much writing space. I also didn't like them because the writing lines in the 5 triangle areas were often slanted or upside down and this made the students' writing difficult to read when displayed on a bulletin board.

blue bullet point Consequetly, I designed my own version of a star template. My star book report project contains 6 templates that are glued together to form an extra large star and the writing lines are all in the same direction so it is easy to read each of the writing sections inside the triangle areas.

blue bullet point Below is a photograph from my classroom of my students' star book report projects.

Star Book Report Projects Elementary Student Classroom Bulletin Board Display

blue bullet point Traditionally, requiring students to write about the books that they have read is a task that most students find quite boring. By using this extra large Star Book Report, your students will be starry eyed to complete this assignment!

blue bullet point This book report set contains six worksheet templates that assemble into a star. The finished star project measures 19 inches in width and 19 inches in height.

blue bullet point These finished book report projects will make a superstar classroom display of your students' work.

blue bullet point Everything that you need to complete these Star 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 22 worksheet and template pages in this set, as well as a 5 page color bulletin board display banner.

blue bullet point There is also a large reading star that you can use as a centerpiece for 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.


Assembling Directions:

blue bullet point This set includes assembly directions on how to prepare and assemble this project. Below is a sample of this 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 Star Book Report grading rubric:


Star Shaped Book Report Projects 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. 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 This Star Book Report Project contains five writing templates and one template for students to draw a picture.

  • 1. Book Information: Title, Author, and Genre
  • 2. The Star of this Book: Describe the main character of the book.
  • 3. My Starring Role: Pretend that you are the author of this book and add yourself as a new character in the story. Describe how the story changes by adding yourself as a new character.
  • 4. A Super Star Scene: Describe your favorite part of the story.
  • 5. My Star Rating: Shade in your star rating and explain why you gave the book this rating.
  • 6. Center Template Drawing

blue bullet point Due to spelling differences in English (words like color/colour and favorite/favourite), there are two sets of downloads for these worksheets, as well as the final draft templates. You can select the spelling that is used in the country that you are from.

blue bullet point This set contains two 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 star templates.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the first draft worksheets.


Star Shaped Book Report Project First Draft Writing Worksheets

Black and White Star Templates:

blue bullet point This book report project includes 6 templates that assemble into the shape of a large star. There is an area on the center template for students to draw and color a picture of their favorite part of the book.

blue bullet point The first template (below) is the middle of the star project. Students write their names and draw a picture on this template.

Star Templates for Book Report Projects

blue bullet point There are 5 triangle templates for the 5 points of the star. The first triangle template (below) is glued on the top section and contains the title information about the book.

Star Shaped Templates for Book Report Projects

blue bullet point The second triangle template (below) is glued on the left section and students write about The Star of This Book (describe the main character of the book.) I have designed the writing lines on this template to be horizontal so that they are easy to read when displayed on a bulletin board.

Star Shaped Templates for Elementary Book Report Projects

blue bullet point The third triangle template (below) is glued on the left bottom section and students write about My Starring Role (pretend that you are the author of this book and add yourself as a new character in the story. Describe how the story changes by adding yourself as a new character.)

Star Shaped Templates for School Book Report Projects

blue bullet point The fourth triangle template (below) is glued on the right bottom section and students write about A Super Star Scene (describe your favorite part of the story.)

Star Shaped Templates for Primary School Book Report Projects

blue bullet point The fifth triangle template (below) is glued on the right section and students write about My Star Rating (shade in your star rating and explain why you gave the book this rating.) I have designed the writing lines on this template to be horizontal so that they are easy to read when displayed on a bulletin board.

Color Star 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 star 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 a yellow set and a rainbow set of star templates of this project for you to choose from.

blue bullet point Below are the yellow star templates. The center template has not been colored in because that is the area where you will draw a picture.

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.

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 Star 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.

blue bullet point This Star Book Report Project includes a large star classroom decoration that is the same size as the students' star templates. When assembled together, the star says, WE ARE READING SUPERSTARS!














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

blue bullet point In the photograph below, you will a finished classroom display using these star book report templates, as well as another bulletin board of character body book reports (also available on my website.)

blue bullet point These star graphic organizers are a creative 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 an engaging way that contains "starry" writing topics.
