Here's a picnic book you can make as you tell the story below:

Let’s go on a picnic. First we need a picnic basket.
(Fold the paper in half.)

Next, we need hotdogs.
(Fold the paper in fourths.)

We also need hamburgers.
(Fold the paper into eighths.)
We’ll need a picnic bench to sit at.
(Open so it’s folded in half. Bring
one bottom flap to the fold. Turn
over and bring the other bottom flap
to the fold.)

A picnic is more fun if we share it
with a friend. (Tear down middle crease
until you reach the fold.)

Now all we need is a book to write a
story about our adventures on our picnic.
(Hands on top of bench, bend down, and
fold around to make a book.)

Use for:      letter books, word families
                  reading the room, writing the room
                  fact families
                  shape or color books
                  unit or theme
                  spelling words (picture/sentence)
                  friends’ names and phone numbers
                  opposites, story elements
                  original stories

Hint! Let children decorate an individual cereal box to store their picnic books.
