Wanted Book Report Projects:
What's Included?


Fun Book Report Project Ideas for Elementary Students Wanted Poster Examples

blue bullet point Wanted Poster Book Report Projects: Your students will WANT to be creative and use their imaginations to complete this fun reading response activity.

Wanted Poster Book Report Projects Red Templates blue bullet point Many teachers have used the idea of a wanted poster for a book report project for their students. Students enjoy trying to think up a crime or something that the main character did that would make him or her wanted by the police.

blue bullet point The wanted poster book reports that I have seen during my 22+ years of teaching are usually boring activities and short one page worksheets for students to write on.

blue bullet point I have found that many of these one page versions of wanted posters did not have much space for a written response, and usually the largest area on the worksheet was for an illustration.

blue bullet point Instead of a traditional and boring one page worksheet, I have designed an extra large four template wanted poster book report project. Three of the templates contain fun creative writing responses and students draw a picture of the main character on the fourth template.

blue bullet point If you have used this activity before with your students, I am sure that you will find that your students will have fun and enjoy completing these larger and more detailed graphic organizers even more!


Wanted Poster Book Report Projects, Templates and Worksheets Example

blue bullet point Your students will have fun using their imaginations to think up a crime that their characters have committed. For this assignment, students write about the character's physical description, where the character was last seen, a narrative describing the crime that the character committed, and a summary of the book.

Large Wanted Poster Book Report Projects Template Measurements blue bullet point This uniquely shaped book report project contains four worksheet templates that assemble into a large wanted poster. There is a fifth template that has the headings "WANTED" and "REWARD AMOUNT" in text boxes, and these two headings are glued onto the poster after it has been assembled.

blue bullet point The finished wanted poster project measures 12 inches in width and 18 inches in height (see example on the right.)

blue bullet point Everything that you need to complete these wanted book report projects is included in this set of teaching resources. All that you will need is scissors, glue, tape, and coloring pencils.

blue bullet point There are 15 printable worksheets and template pages in this set, as well as a 5 page color bulletin board display banner.

blue bullet point These finished wanted poster book report projects will make a colorful and dynamic bulletin board display of your students' work.

blue bullet point In addition, this set of reading resources includes 4 reading posters with a wanted theme that can be used as accent pieces for your classroom bulletin board display.

blue bullet point Traditionally, requiring students to write about the main character of a book is a task that most students find quite boring. By using these extra large wanted posters, your students will WANT to complete these fun book report projects!

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

Grading Rubric:

Wanted Poster Book Report Projects Yellow Templates blue bullet point A book report grading rubric is included in this set of teaching resources.

blue bullet point 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.

blue bullet point 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.

blue bullet point Below is an example of my wanted poster book report grading rubric.


Wanted Poster Book Report Grading Rubric

First Draft Worksheets:

Wanted Poster Book Report Projects Green Templates 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 wanted poster templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets.

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

blue bullet point This wanted poster book report project is divided into the following creative writing sections:

  • Physical Description: Height, weight, eyes, hair, and distinguishing features
  • Last Seen: Describe where the character was when he/she was last seen by another person. What was the character doing? What was the character wearing?
  • Wanted For: Think of something that your character has done and why he/she is wanted by the police. You can make the crime related to something that has happened in the book, or you can make up something new that the character has done. Write a detailed narrative describing the actions that happened and what made the character commit this crime. Try to use interesting adjectives and colorful verbs in your narrative.
  • Novel Summary: Write a short summary about the plot of this book.
  • Novel Description: Title, author, and genre
  • Photograph: Drawing of the character.

Wanted Poster Book Report Projects Blue Templates blue bullet point This set of teaching resources contains three printable worksheets for students to write their first drafts on.

blue bullet point On my first draft worksheets, I have designed the writing line spaces to match the spaces allotted on the final draft wanted poster book report templates.

blue bullet point First Draft Worksheet #1: Students fill in the following information about their books: title, author, genre, character's name, and reward amount.

blue bullet point Next, students write a physical description of the character that includes the character's height, weight, eye color, hair color, and distinguishing features.


Wanted Poster Book Report Project First Draft Writing Worksheets

blue bullet point First Draft Worksheet #2: Students write why the main character is wanted by the police, the action that happened, and what caused the character to commit this crime.


Wanted Poster Book Report Projects First Draft  Worksheets

blue bullet point First Draft Worksheet #3: Students write where the character was last seen and a summary of the story.

blue bullet point On the top right template, students draw a picture of their character.

Wanted Book Report Projects and Templates for Main Character

blue bullet point Below are the heading templates. Students write their character's name in the WANTED text box and the amount of reward money in the REWARD AMOUNT text box.


Headings for Wanted Poster

blue bullet point The WANTED text box is glued on the top center section of the poster and the REWARD AMOUNT text box is glued in the middle of the poster.

blue bullet point Below is a large example so that you can see where these two headings are glued.

Color Final Draft Templates:

Fun Wanted Poster Book Report Projects Ideas and Examples for Elementary School Students 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 a completed project looks like.

blue bullet point I always complete an example of this wanted poster book report project before I introduce this assignment to my students.

blue bullet point Before my students begin writing their first drafts, I show them my finished wanted poster 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.

blue bullet point 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.

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

Free 5 Page Bulletin Board Display Banner:

Wanted Poster Book Report Projects Girl Elementary School Student blue bullet point I know that it takes teachers a lot of time to design and assemble their classroom bulletin board displays.

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

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

blue bullet point 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.

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!
