(Where is summer going by the way? The school year doesn't go by this quickly!)
I'm linking up with:
for her Throwdown Thursday.
I've used these mini-books many times this summer and almost blogged about them-before I saw Erin's reminder :)
The kids love these books, and they are really easy to make. I first saw them at a workshop 6 or 7 years ago as a (very) young teacher. I've also seen them recently floating around.
First, start with a piece of paper.
Open paper up so it is only folded in half (back to step number 2-but now with fold lines!)
Now you can have your kids create anything! It's an 8 page book (including front and back covers). I've had kids create mini-animal encyclopedias, a 'list' of favorite books, summarizing a longer book, etc.
I've most recently used them to have kids pick their favorite animal pairs from a book we read and draw and write about them.
