One of the things my kiddos LOVE doing is writing class books. And for a while now, I've been trying to put a packet together of some of the class books that my class writes. Sorry it's taken me a while to get this finished but IT'S FINALLY DONE!!
I LOVE connecting writing to reading. This packet has 8 suggested picture books you can read and then springboard from there to write a class book.
There are reproducible student pages and a book cover page for each class book. You can make 9 class books including an acrostic poem and letters to the Tooth Fairy. You can check it out at my TEACHER NOTEBOOK and TEACHER PAY TEACHER shops. Just click on my sidebar.
We just finished our class book called 'The Best Part of Me' and it turned out great. We read the book by Wendy Ewald.
We had a great discussion about self-respect. We picked a part of our body and wrote why it was our best part. Then I took photos of each child's best part to go along with their writing. Here are a few examples:
And of course, the teacher has to add her page to the book as well.
Congratulations to Marybeth, Becky and Cherie!! They are the winners.
THANKS everyone for all the great comments.
