Part of our plan for homeschool in kindergarten is teaching parts of stories and doing some more formal review of what we read together.
My daughter loves reading and being read to and she loves to draw pictures.
This kindergarten book report printable worksheet freebie has been a good way to reinforce simple story elements and document our reading for our end of the year evaluation.
Why Do Book Reports in Kindergarten
Book reports don’t have to be boring!
Especially for little learners! This book report template for kindergarteners engages my homeschool kindergartener by using drawing to show her favorite parts of the story. It also helps introduce the concept of story elements like characters and setting.
This activity gives her a structured way to discuss her favorite stories with me in a way that keeps her interested.
Easy Book Ideas for Kindergarten
The first half of the year, we read and did units based on:
- Elephant and Piggy: We are in a Book
- Elephant and Piggy: Pigs Make me Sneeze!
- Ladybug Girl and the Dress Up Dilemna
- The Berenstain Bears Four Seasons
- The First Thanksgiving Day
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- The Polar Express
- Snowmen at Night
Right now, we are doing a huge unit loosely based on the Disney Princesses since my daughter loves them so much and more than anything, reading should be fun!
We are reading different versions of the stories- the Disney version that we all know- and the tales they are based on. (If you plan to try this with your little one, do your homework! Some of these stories are very dark but you can find kid friendly versions out there.)
We use this sheet as a springboard for doing a compare and contrast between the Disney version of the tales and the other versions.
So far we have done Frozen, which is based on the Snow Queen, and Sleeping Beauty.
Chapter Books for Read Aloud for Kindergarten
We’ve also been transitioning into reading aloud each day from chapter books. Again, we let her pick books she is interested in. Some of her favorites have been:
- The Unicorn Princess Series
- Cutiecorns (notice a theme here lol?)
- Lucky Stars Series
- Baby-Sitters Club Little Sister series
We also plan to dive into The American Girl series as we do a bit of history later this year.
