4th grade book review sample
A book review in the fourth grade shows how well a child understands a book and his or her thoughts about the story. This type of review gives more students experience with expressing his or her opinion and critiquing a piece of literature. In addition, a book review can encourage a child to read more. Introduce the book to your reader. Mention the title of the book and underline it, and tell the reader who authored the book. This will be the first paragraph of the body of your fourth grade book review.
In order to illustrate what a book review is, we have provided a book review example for your reference. Genius:). I love the idea of having the students write book reviews and share them with the class. I have a class of 24 students and we divided October into four book review days (usually on Friday) with six students sharing each time. The students LOVED it and asked lots of questions. Here is a sample of a book review a student recently shared.
