Book Reports

I am asking you to share one story a month.  You will have many choices about what you read, but sometimes I will ask you to read a certain genre (type or category) of book. 

Book reports are due at the end of each month.  (no book reports due in December or May, book report holidays.)  More detailed directions for the book reports will come home at the beginning of each month.  Below you will find a little preview.  Click on the underlined title for more detailed information.

September: book genre -- your choice
* very short oral book share due on September 22nd through the 26th
