A St. Patrick's Day Book Review and Response

With St. Pat's Day one week away, I thought I'd share the March Reading Response sheet. The kids are getting so much better at writing these. They respond by telling the title, main characters, problem, events and sometimes the solution. Then they give their opinion or make a connection. We are working on writing with our audience in mind. For this one it is their peers. We try to hit the voice target on this one. I can really hear some speak through their writing on these.

After writing their review, they created a little leprechaun.
They are all using the same pattern for the beard, hat and face yet they are all unique! I love how they make them their own: Here is our "Books Are As Good As Gold" display. Kids like reading these. They love doing oral "commercials" to advertise the books they are reading. These are similar, just written down.

Here is the review sheet if you want to give it a try!


  1. Love all your monthly book review forms. Did I miss one for February?

  3. Really cute book review! thanks for sharing.

  4. I LOVE your book review form! I am wondering, do you have a pattern for the leprechaun head, hat, and beard that you would also be willing to share? As always thank you so much for your willingness to share!!!

  5. I'm so happy to share anything I have! If you email me at asking for the pattern I will email it to you. It's easiest to do it that way since I have it scanned. Thanks for your sweet comments...I'm glad that others will try it. I think your kids will have fun with it.

  6. Thanks for sharing, so cute!
