Second Grade Book Reports

The Reader and Writer Ace

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
                                    I Corinthians 10:5

 

Books and stories are a good habit!  You are now an old pro at recognizing and seeing "word pictures". Remember, a "word picture" is a picture your mind creates as you read or your parents read a story to you.

Whenever you or your parents read a story, ask yourself ....

1. Can I see God’s providential care?
2. Why did God allow this to happen?

Along with the above questions, keep an eye out for the rascally villian in a book!  He is sure to pop up and try to entice the hero to do wrong or places snares before the hero..

The last book report form in this series will have you write out your very FIRST book report on notebook paper! It is okay, actually, you are encouraged, to fill out your book report form as you are reading your book. When you are done writing your form, make sure everyting is spelled correctly. Before you actually begin to write your book report, read your report out loud to your mother, father, sisters, or brothers. Does it sound right? If not, change it now!

The first thing in writing a book report is to do a "Title Page". A "Title Page" is where you write the title of your book in the middle of the notebook paper.  (DO NOT FORGET TO UNDERLINE THE TITLE OF YOUR BOOK) Directly underneath the book's title that you have written and underlined, write the author's name.  Finally, down toward the bottom on the right hand side of the notebook paper, write your name and date and anything else your parents' desire. Here is an idea of what it may look like.

TITLE PAGE EXAMPLE ...

 

 

BOOK NAME

by Author's Name

 

 

 

 

                                                        Your Name
                                                        Date

 

 

Start writing your book report on a new, clean sheet of notebook paper.

Take your time writing your book report.  This is not a speed race!  Accuracy and neatness counts !  Do your best. When you are done, re-read what you have written.

1.  Is everything spelled correctly?
2.  Do you have end marks behind all your sentences?
3.  Is your paper as neat as YOU can make it?

WELL DONE !

*Special Note:  Parents in order to decrease frustration, you may want to get erasable pens!

At this point, a mother/father may wish to review ...

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die .... ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.  ---    Genesis 3:4, 5

Remind your children that the above Scripture verse and others tell us the motive of the villain ... to be like God and to replace our King.  You may, at this point if you have not dones so already, opt to introduce new vocabulary words like --- pagan, infidel, or humanist (as all these terms hold essentially the same meaning).
