Creative Book Report Project Ideas:  Sunflower Templates

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




Sunflower Book Report Projects:
What's Included?

Sunflower Book Report Project: Your students will find this project SUN-sational!

This sunflower shaped reading response set will provide you with all of the teaching resources that you need for your students to write a review of the book and explain how the main character changes (blooms) from the beginning of the book to the end of the book.

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

By using this uniquely shaped sunflower book report project that contains graphic organizers that are worded in a SUN-sational way, your students' written responses will be blooming with creativity.

These sunflower graphic organizers would be ideal to use during the fall, as you often see sunflowers with scarecrow and fall graphics. Since these projects are brightly colored flowers when they are finished, they are also idea for spring themes as well.

Sunflower Book Report Project Templates and Graphic Organizers


This sunflower book report project contains three templates that assemble into two sunflowers and a pot. The finished project measures 14 inches in height and 11 inches in width.

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

There are 11 worksheet and template pages in this set, as well as a 5 page color bulletin board display banner. There are 16 pages of sunflower related accent pieces for you to use to help you decorate 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:

This set includes assembly directions on how to prepare and assemble this project. Below is a sample of the assembly directions page.

Grading Rubric:

This set includes a book report grading rubric.

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.

Below is an example of my sunflower 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 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.

This sunflower book report set is divided into three sections:

  • This book is SUN-sational! Write a short review about the book that you read. Your review should make other students interested in reading this book too!
  • This scene from the book is SUN-sational! Students draw a picture of their favorite part of the book.
  • The Main Character Blooms! During the main events that happen in a book, the main character usually changes, solves a problem, or learns a valuable lesson. Describe what your character was like at the end of the book. How did this character change (bloom) after he/she solved the problem or challenge? What valuable lesson did the main character learn at the end of the book?
  • Stems and Pot: Title of Book, Author, Genre, Name, and Date

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

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 sunflower templates.

Below is an example of the first draft writing worksheets for this sunflower book report set.

Black and White Sunflower Templates:

This set includes 3 worksheets with templates that assemble into the shape of two sunflowers in a pot. The finished sunflower book report project measures 14 inches in height and 11 inches in width.

Below are the two sunflower templates. On the first sunflower template, student write why this book is SUN-sational and on the second sunflower template, students draw a picture of a scene from the book that is SUN-sational.

On the pot template, students write about how the main character blooms (changes from the beginning of the story to the end of the story). Students write the title, author, and genre in the stems, and along the top rim of the pot students write their name and date.

Color Sunflower 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 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.

My students enjoy seeing my sunflower 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.

To save you time in coloring your example that you show your students, I have included color sunflower templates of this project for you to use.

Free 5 Page Bulletin Board Display Banner:

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 sunflower book report projects.

Free Bulletin Board Display Accent Pieces:

EXTRA GOODIES #1: For some of my book report sets, I am able to think of, and create, additional accent pieces to help you in decorating your bulletin board displays.

This Sunflower Book Report Project includes 6 large sunflowers that you can use as accents pieces on your sunflower bulletin board display. These sunflowers say: Our Sunflower Book Reports Are SUN-sational!

Sunflower Bulletin Board Display Examples and Ideas for Spring Themes

There are 4 different stem and leaf templates to use with these 6 flowers.

Spring and Fall Sunflowers for Bulletin Board Display Ideas


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

These sunflower 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.

The writing responses that are required of your students will make them think and write about how the main character changes during the book in a fun and engaging way. In addition, this book report set includes sunflower themed accent pieces to help you in decorating your bulletin board display.

I hope that your students will finding these flower book report graphic organizers SUN-sational!
