STICK BOOK

Here's a book your students will WANT to write in!  It can be used as a letter book, for retelling the sequence of a story, for writing sight words or spelling words, for original stories, for math, science - you name it!

Materials:  2 sheets of paper, a craft stick, rubber band, and hole punch 
Directions: Fold two sheets of paper in half and cut along the folded line. Stack these and fold in half again. Hole punch on the folded side about 1 ½” from each end. Push one end of the rubber band through one hole and insert the end of the popsicle stick through the loop. Push the other end of the rubber band through the other hole and insert the other end of the popsicle stick through that loop.

Hint! To make a bigger book just fold several sheets of paper in half.
