Book Reporting with Book Mobiles.
Bates, Ellie
Reading Teacher, v37 n4 p433-34 Jan 1984
Students can be motivated to share their reading interests and their writing talents by creating book report mobiles. After students have read a book, they begin their mobile by attaching string to an empty box which has been covered with plain paper. Next, they decorate one side of the mobile with a drawing which illustrates the story or they design a book cover with fancy lettering (for those who "can't draw"). They then write a book report which explains the illustration and why someone else should read the book (the students who have lettered the cover can write about the people, places, or happenings in the book). The book report is then transferred to the other side of the mobile. When they are finished, the book mobiles are hung where other students can enjoy them and, if the students like their peers' recommendations, they will choose to read the books themselves. (DC)
