FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “FREEBIE Design a T-Shirt Book Response Project”

by Aspire to Inspire Classroom Resources
3rd - 6th Grade

Been there, read that, bought the t-shirt...or made the t-shirt, at least! With this fun and creative book report alternative, students will design a t-shirt based on important scenes or characters from a book that they have read.

Simply print and use. Everything the student needs to complete this project--and you to assess it--is included in the file:

--Project description and requirements
--Student template for t-shirt and notes about the project
--Student final project description to accompany t-shirt

This VERSATILE project can be used with any genre of book. Assessment of the project is EASY with a rubric designed for you to develop your own evaluation scale based on the requirements of the project.


Turn book reports from drab to FAB! You can find this project plus 29 other READY-TO-USE creative alternatives to the traditional book report in Not Your Grandma's Book Report: 30 Creative Ways to Respond to Literature. This bundle of 30 projects includes everything students need to show what they know about what they've read!

--30 detailed project descriptions with requirements

SO EASY TO USE! With more than 150 pages of materials, this product is organized by project, and elements are uniform in look, layout, and language. Project descriptions, graphic organizers, final templates, and rubrics are distinguished from one another by specific page frames and uniform page headings. 

SO EASY TO ASSESS! Rubrics are specific to the projects but allow for you to develop your own evaluation scale. 

GREAT VALUE, GREAT QUALITY! At 50 cents per project and 150+ pages of resources, you're getting not only great value but also a comprehensive, organized and thoughtfully prepared product that frees up your valuable prep time. One-time investment = years of use!


INCORPORATE CREATIVE RESPONSE PROJECTS LIKE THIS ONE INTO A LARGER ELA PROJECT! Looking to replace traditional book reports with a comprehensive language arts project? I invite you to check out my BIG ELA Book Report Project FULL VERSION

The BIG ELA Book Report Project turns a traditional book report into a truly comprehensive language arts activity using a combination of reading, writing, speaking, and listening tasks. Each part of this project is aligned with an ELA Common Core standard.

--Reading: Students read a book of their choice from a specified genre. Then, they demonstrate comprehension and higher-level thinking by completing two response projects from the Not Your Grandma's Book Report list. 

--Writing: Students also demonstrate comprehension by completing a genre-specific handout that requires knowledge of the setting, characters, plot, problem, and solution. Students are also asked to relate the book to themselves with opinion questions that require support from the book.

--Speaking: Students use their knowledge of the book and opinions with support to prepare and give a 3-5 minute book talk to persuade classmates to read the book.

-Listening: Students demonstrate active listening skills by completing a feedback form for each book talk. Students write down details from each book talk and evaluate whether they would like to read the book in the future.
