Share the excitement of a favorite book! With this colorful fabric scroll book report, students unfurl the action one scene at a time.
This is no ordinary book report! Students select a favorite chapter book or story and consider how to summarize important parts of the story with illustrations as well as dialogue balloons. Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils are the perfect medium to capture student student ideas. Will you tell what happened at the end? You can change your mind as many times as you like with your sketches, because these colored pencils really do erase.
Students provide two wooden dowel rods. Measure their length using a ruler. Using Crayola Scissors, students cut a long piece of white cotton or 50/50 cotton/polyester cloth. Cut the fabric slightly longer than needed to show the main scenes. The fabric needs to be a bit narrower than the length of the dowels so the wooden ends can be used for handles.
Line up and glue the fabric ends to the dowel sticks with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the glue.
Assist students with unwinding a little bit of fabric where they have drawn the first important scene. Place the scroll on white paper. Use Crayola Fabric Markers to draw the action. Include dialogue balloons to convey important ideas and characters’ feelings.
Unroll the fabric, move the paper under the next section, and continue to draw pictures from the story. Allow the unrolled scroll dry overnight.
Students roll up their stories. When one's turn comes to present their selected story, students scroll along while re-telling the major events of the story to classmates.
