Reading For Fun Worksheet: Circles
Updated: Mar 22, 2019
Hello! I hope everyone had a chance recently to sit down with a good book. If not, I hope you get a chance soon.
For my next worksheet, I mainly had a lot of fun creating circles and thinking about what kids could write in them. So, I give you: Circles.
I figured the most organized way to do this was have the upper portion used for technical information and the bottom portion used for creative answers and stick the book title, author, summary, and five-star rating into the middle of the page. So if you're looking at the picture and wondering about the layout, you now know what was in my mind.
In the top portion, the questions are as followed:
What genre is the book?
Is it part of a series?
The number of pages in the book.
The date the book was finished on.
What is the setting of the book?
Who is the main character in the book?
And would you recommend the book to a friend?
Of course, with a small circle, I couldn't fit the entire question, so shortened prompts are used but I think kids will be able to figure it out. Each question gives fun information about the book that might be overlooked and give kids a chance to think about some different elements to the book other than just the story itself.
Under the first group of circles, is space for the book title and author. A few lines are given for a brief summary and there is always more room on the back of the page if something longer is needed. And under that is the five-star rating to color in and display how much the book was liked.
And then comes the bottom grouping of circles. Since the circles are small, the answers to the prompts must be creatively kept to one-word answers. But that just adds to the fun!
Think of one word about the beginning of the book. And the climax (the exciting bit of action the whole book has lead to). And the resolution (how everything got solved). It could be a word that sums it up emotionally: exciting, boring, wonderful, clever... or it could be a memorable word about those parts of the books: dogs, friends, apology, hats...really anything works as long as it makes sense to them.
And the last grouping of one-word answers is for: overall thoughts, something fun, something funny, and something to remember.
Hopefully, coming up with a one-word answer to summarize the mess of thoughts about everything that was read will bring out the creative and fun side of things.
And that completes the entire worksheet—or since I'm aiming for more fun than work, I should call it a funsheet.
