Book Report Helper


Writing book reports can be challenging, especially for children with special needs. This strategy can help your child from becoming overwhelmed with a book, by having him remember it chapter by chapter.

Get several sheets of lined paper and staple them together to make a booklet.

Each time your child finishes reading a chapter, ask him to write one or two sentences to describe what happened in that chapter. Have him read what he wrote about previous chapters before beginning a new one. This will help him to remember what is happening in the story.

When your child finishes the last chapter, have him write a few sentences to describe how the book ended. He'll end up with a full summary of the book to help him write his book report.

Don't forget to hydrate! Forego sugary juices and sodas and pack a bottle of water in your child's lunch. If your child likes a little more flavor, spice it up with lemon, lime, cucumbers, or fresh fruit.
