If you want to make it larger, print pages 2, 4 & 6 a second time for more spaces. It was made with the intention to use those shiny star stickers, but you could easily use colored pencils or markers to draw in stars instead.

- My_Review.pdf Sue Pennell, a 5th grade teacher at Eric Knowlton School in Berwick, is sharing her Review Form. Students have to fill these out after they have read a MSBA book. There are giant Post Its around the school and the reviews are displayed beneath the name of the book. The student's name is then added to our huge "Bull's Eye" that indicates where they are in regards to reading all of the nominated books. Our students have read A LOT this year!
