The Book Report from the BLACK LAGOON: A Student Book Report
Laugh out loud funny book for early elementary school children--especially reluctant readers. My daughter in first grade loves this and we read it every night. My son in fourth grade thinks he's too old for the story but the message is targeted to him. Reading is fun! Reading is awesome! You just need to ask your librarian to help find the right books. With positive encouragement any child can learn to love reading. Oh how difficult it may be to start reading a book and do a book report when you just do not like to read. This book is a fun way for students who feel that they just can not engage in reading to begin to read. The Book Report from the Black Lagoon allows for students to connect with the main character and at the same time allow themselves to become engaged in reading. This is a great way for the student to find the humor in reading and also to begin to read chapter books.
This packet contains a variety of comprehension activities for a unit on The Book Report from the Black Lagoon. Students will work on reading skills such as predictions, cause and effect, reference materials, genres, sequencing, text evidence, and connections. The packet can be used for independent reading, small group, or whole classroom.
This week during our reading club our group read The Book Report from the Black Lagoon written by Mike Thaler and illustrated by Jared Lee. This book is about a boy named Hubie. We would describe Hubie as nervous because he doesn’t read very fast, and he has to write a book report. We put together a video. The video is a summary of each chapter. We hope you enjoy it!
I hope you enjoy :)
