Cereal Box Book Reports – A Fun Alternative!

I am always looking for unique ways for my students to demonstrate understanding of novels they have read. While I love Accelerated Reader and the quick check on comprehension it provides for virtually any novel, sometimes my students crave something a little different.  Enter Cereal Box Book Reports!

A few years ago, I started using Cereal Box Book Reports as an ELA project.  My students LOVED making them, I noticed a big difference in their engagement in the book report process and they were so excited to share their final project.  We even left the finished products on display in the classroom!
Here are some photos of the finished products:
Cereal names must correlate to the novels. Students used a rubric to know of the expectations for the project.
 Students enjoyed creating their boxes!  Some of the cereal names were, uh…..quite creative…. 😉
 Novels were rated, summarized, and described on the side panels.
The setting and characters were described on a side panel, and students created a fun game or activity related to the book on the back.
You can create your own rubric and project directions for your students, or if you would like to save time, check out my Cereal Box Book Report Resource Packet!
Looking for some more fun and creative book report ideas?  I’ve put together a list of 10 Book Report Projects that Kids Love.  Sometimes a fun book project is not enough, especially for those reluctant readers.  Based on my experience, here’s 25 of the best books for Tweens!
